Last week was advanced improv curves at Curves Camp. As usual, Rachel had three amazing projects to choose from. I initially selected the leaves mat:
I went a little wild with fabrics! The main fabric is an older Anna Maria Horner print from her Garden Party line, the leaves are Kona Chartreuse & Celery, the border is an owl print from Alexander Henry and the binding is Kona Cerise. I am excited about putting this mat to use in my laundry room!
The tricky part of this project was matching up the points of the leaves.
I just kept coming back to the Mod Buds notebook cover and finally just had to make one:
The tricky part of this one was the cup-like flower. I threw away versions 1 and 2 of it! But, I finally got a handle on it and I just love how this turned out. I am planning to make these for teacher appreciation week, I've been wanting to ever since I saw the ones Rachel made for the do. Good Stitches circle hostesses. This one uses Kona Ash, Kona Artichoke, the Hometown from Sweetwater and a lot of prints from Amy Butler's lotus line.
This is our last week of Curves Camp. I wish it was going on a little longer. I think Rachel mentioned having the class again, so if you are thinking of it, I would definitely tell you to go for it!
