3rd and 4th Meeting

Sorry for not updating in a while, but I'll make up for it with details of our great past two meetings!

Third Meeting: T-Shirt Reconstruction
The third meeting at Starbucks was awesome! We all had a fun time restyling our old t-shirts and eating delicious cupcakes.

Here is a list of projects that we worked on during the 3rd Meeting:
a t-shirt bag (be sure to check out the tutorial)
a cute braided headband with a flower applique
and finally, a very easy and versatile fringe scarf, courtesy of a free tutorial provided by (check out her website and book for stylish and no-hassle tutorials).

Here are some videos of the step-by-step process of making the scarf and the rose applique (look for the flat rose tutorial) for the braided headband:

Fourth Meeting: Totoro Sock Animals
Next meeting, we were joined by three new members! Yay! The project we worked on was an adorably easy-to-make Totoro Sock Animal based on this tutorial.
We munched on some brownie-bites (thanks, Jinny) while sharing a few random stories. Some members even thought of great improvisations for their sock animal-some decided to make cats or bunnies!

Until next time!
