Love Is In The Air...

February is a time to show those you love just how much you care about them!  These Love Birds are the perfect gift to show that special someone :)  Are they not just the cutest things?!?  So much fun to make, these birds will teach you how to sew curves...not as scary as you might think!

Tina's Tidy tray is the project that all of our students make very first!  It is also a great project to take home and make and give away as a gift.  They make great teacher gifts.  Fill them with post-it notes or a treat and wrap it up with a cute bow!   Oh, the possibilities!

 Is this not an adorable pieced pillow?  Learn how to ruffle and put in a zipper in your pillows.  This pillow top has beginner applique and beginner piecing.  A fun addition to your Valentine decor!
So...have you figured out that we love to make table runners here at Simple Stitches??  It is such a fun project and doesn't take too long either.  This table runner has super easy piecing and machine applique.  We also teach you how to bind.  Don't you just love the polka dots? 
Ok...this looks like the most adorable skirt, right?  Wrong!  This is one of our half aprons.
 So fun!  I just love the layered ruffles. 
So many fun techniques in this piece, ruffles, darts, ric-rac, and tons more! 
I am pretty sure this will make cooking that much more enjoyable ;)
We are a Sewing and Knitting School and we realized that we have not posted a single thing about knitting!  We have adult knitting classes some at night and some during the day.  (Check our class schedule for dates and times.) This is just a sample of something you could knit for Valentine's Day.  I made a bunch of these cute heart ornaments to hang on a small tree that decorates my kitchen table.  Don't worry if you have never knit before, I can teach you right from the start! 

Simple Stitches Sewing & Knitting School is an on going year round school. Sewing machines are provided for students. No need to have your own machine! Class openings are available. Call or email to reserve your spot today! Classes starting every week!
