Can you tell I miss Texas a little? I had several fabric to choose from but I kept going back to the cowboys with the red background-so bright, so vibrant. Take a closer look:
Isn’t it adorable? I saved the scraps for I don’t know what, a headband? A little wallet? I guess I would need a sewing machine for that. Oh well. I am considering taking another class, a clutch making class perhaps. The Make Lounge was very fun and the teacher was patient and quite bubbly, singing along to the music playing in the background. The only thing that could have made it better was if they had served goodies? Wait! They did! A tray of goodies awaited class members: tea, coffee, wine, biscuits and crisps. I thought alcohol and machinery didn’t mix but apparently the owners of the shop think differently. I didn’t pour myself a glass until I was half way done with my class. The stitching in my handles are a bit crap so maybe I can blame it on the wine? Well I know better for next time.
Here are some pictures of the workshop location:
Isn’t it cute? Glad I found a nice place to go to and learn to create things. There’s so much to be said about making things with your hands. Oh! And not only did I possibly discover a new hobby but also a great neighborhood. The workshop is located in the gorgeous neighborhood (or is it neighbourhood?) of Islington, off of Upper Street. The whole street is full of restaurants and cute shops. I cannot wait to go and explore it some weekend soon.
