They Call Me "Teacher"

I've already told you about my friend, Jennifer's, upcoming retreat. Sew South is going to be so fun and I am so excited to announce that I will be teaching the framed clutch class.
Now we just need to decide which clutch I will be teaching.
There's this Simple Clutch with it's elegant shape and no angles to worry about.



I made this one using Maasai Mara by Dear Stella fabrics received at Sewing Summit.

This one that requires a traceable pattern. Both can be customized to include pieced fronts or made as simple as you want.


I made this one with scraps left from working on my Indie Star quilts. The backing is Essex linen in the Steel color.

Lined with one of my favorite Indie prints.

I made this one just for fun. I'm working on a new design for the inside but it still needs some tweaking.

I know this is going to be a fun group and also I get to visit a new to me city.  Jennifer tells me Charlotte is beautiful and full of history and character. It will be a great reunion with some of the people I have met before and to also meet so many new quilters and sewists.
