I was trying to describe this project I did to my friend Valerie and I did such a bad job I ended up telling her she'd just have to see it in person. As I've said before, I like to participate in some of the Stampington challenges. This project was for their coffee filter call. I ended up making a sewing basket of sorts on a canvas. I found that the coffee filters were so delicate that I had to sew them to watercolor paper for added strength. I sewed three cone shaped filters together to form a 3-D "basket". It bubbles off the canvas more than it looks. I then stuffed it full of sewing notions. OK so it's not my most favorite thing I've ever made....but I was challenged and that was the whole point.
I'm off at 3:30am tomorrow to teach at Inspired in North Carolina. My Mother is going with me so I'm looking forward to a great trip.
