I adored our teacher as she believed that nothing was impossible and that everybody could sew. If I remember correctly, she had us making piped cushions as our first project!
One of the other items we made was a Roman blind.
I loved being able to imagine how everything would fit together. It was big fun.
I took extensive notes on how this was made - as I always do. I love flicking through my notes every now and then. The blind that I made after this one can be found here.
This blind has never been used. It's sitting in my 'look, this is what I've made' box.
It reminds me of a time when we used to have a fabric shop in our town; when I used to frequent it regularly; when I felt the glimmer of the *perhaps sewing is for me* thought.
I still remember my teacher and what a great attitude she had. I know she was right!!
