I spent a lovely weekend in Newry with Carrie last weekend. It was so much fun, and I can't believe how productive we were. Carrie showed me how to make silk paper, which is beautiful! We went fabric shopping, experimented with procion dyes, made totes and jewelery.
This was my first real exploration into the sewing world, I've admired Carries textile work from afar and love the amazing artwork she gave me on my wedding. While I've thought about fabrics and playing with them, I never really knew where to start.
So Saturday Carrie decided we'd make some tote's. My effort is pictured here, and I can't quite believe what I made. I normally struggle to sew a button in, so to have produced a finished, usable item is momentus for me. And I think it looks really cool too!
Thank you so much Carrie - you are a wonderful and inspiring teacher.
