Time to TWIST

TWIST – This Week In Studio Time

This week I tried my first ITH bag.  I’m happy with the way it turned out.  I made it for a high school graduation gift for a former 6th grade student of mine, and what a sweetie she is!  I can’t wait to give it to her.  I challenged myself by making it with bulking denim, but there is a reason..

I used denim from a slipcover for a big overstuffed chair I had in my classroom.  I used one of the seams for the strap and key tab. The students used to love to take turns sitting in it and everyone got to sit in it on their birthday (or half birthday if their birthday was in the summer).  I think she’ll remember it.

Denim slipcover complete with 2 of my former students being silly.

I’ll be making more of these bags, for sure.  In the hoop projects kind of amaze me.  So happy there are people out there who enjoy figuring these things out for us!

Take Care until next time!
