The name of the class was Vintage Mini Configurations Book. Paula did a great job in teaching us this project and Scrapbook Island is a wonderful scrapbook store full of a wide assortment of goodies.

Sunday, I went down to A Work Of Heart in San Jose (again) and took a class from Lorri Scott. The class was called Reconstructed, Up-Cycled & Wearable Clothes. Lorris was a great instructor, so helpful and generous with her knowledge and supplies.
We cut sleeves off of men's shirts and created a new top from them. Below are pictures of her samples...
If you look closely, you'll notice in the picture above, the collar is made from a shirt cuff. The pocket is made from a shirt sleeve.
Below is a picture of the back. I added some black silk ribbon to tie the back.
Wow, what a fun-filled weekend of creating - it was great! My neck is a bit sore from looking down so intensely all weekend, but I had such a great time both days, it was well worth the pain!
