Sewing Classes

As I mentioned a bit ago, I signed up to take sewing classes at The Tin Thimble. Saturday, my cousin Rachel and I joined my friend Amber for a delightful class. At this 3 hour class, Hannah taught us how to make Pennant Garland Banners. It was great!

I bought the cutest vintage Christmas fabric from the store and I am so happy with it! 

This is the cutting station where we were carefully cutting the triangles. We each used two different sized templates Hannah had prepared for us.

Cutting out the fabric was the most time consuming step. I cut my triangles with a straight rotary cutter and a curved (scalloped shaped) cutter.

Rachel used a sewing machine for the first time. Her pennant is adorable and looks very much like an item from a catalog. The gals at the store had a sewing machine for her to use. They were so helpful!

Isn't this adorable?!? I am very excited to have a vintage-styled pennant to hang up at Christmastime from now on. 

Have you ever made a garland/pennant/banner? Please put a link in your comment, so I can see it!
