Feb 19... Gail will teach us to make a chenille pot holder. You will need 5 layers of flannel and a piece of batting 10 inches square plus fabric to bind and back with. Don't forget you cutting and sewing supplies. You may want to finish up Dee's sweat shirt too.

Feb 26....Dottie will show us how to make a "Soft Side Sweat Shirt". Again bring a sweat shirt one size larger then you wear, fabric, 6 fat quarters or equal scraps and sewing supplies. Here we will cut the shirt apart and lay the fabric in a pattern or what ever and sew on top and we may use decorative threads etc to embellish. She showed us 3 different styles. They will all look totally different. I can't wait to start. Yes, you may us flannel also.
