As I have mentioned a time or two, I'm currently taking a class from Quilt University Http://www.quiltuniversity.com called "Design Your Perfect Purse" taught by Lily Kerns This is an online class, where the instructor presents the lessons in written format with a lot of photos, graphics and drawings. She also includes links that might interest us and sometimes a video too! There is also a discussion forum where we can interact with the other students. The students in this class are from all over the world, literally!!
I, as the student, am encouraged to print out all of the lessons for future reference. I have done that and more! Ever the organizer, I have a binder, with appropriate tabs and placed all of my "lessons" in protector sheets. Already my binder is quite full!! So, my first thought was to design a binder carryall and never mind the purse! I've got way too many purses already!
Then came Lesson Three. I gotta tell ya, that started my engines!! I have learned a new method for designing a pattern, along with the steps to take to test to see if it works. I have created a whole new looking purse! Now, I just have to make that purse! What fun I am having! This is only a four week class, therefore the LAST class is next Friday ~ oh, I wish it could go on forever! The important thing is that I have acquired some new skills~ not just a few ~ a lot!! If you get a chance, check out their website, link provided above, and see what classes are being offered. There is a class for everyone! I plan to take more!
Back to the binder carryall - I did design one and I'm working on getting it made up along with a patten to publish and sell. And, now, this new purse too! Oh, so many ideas, so little time!
