Sewing a Saori garment class : Saori santa cruz

Leigh Ann is back with some more of her amazing beautiful green Saori cloth  she wove  this time to sew a long Saori vest for her self .

  First  we deciced on a design . she tryed on several of the  many garments  and muslins  I have in the studio and we decided on a style a she like . Then we  layed out her fabric and started cutting it and rearranging it to pin , piece, and sew.

  more pinning and rearranging

 classes offered at saori santacruz here
 email me or call I will custom create a class for you as well , I do it all the time!

 more sewing ...
 still more pinning and cutting
 and sewing….

  still roughly cut  here she is trying  it on for fit...

 we pin and fit some more …
then finish the hems arm holes etc 

  and then…. we  decided to make designer pockets !!!

 she loves it!!!

Here is a photo of  LEIGH ANN  happily WEARING HER HER NEWLY FINISHED SAORI GARMENT OUT AND ABOUT ( here she is buying more yarn… of course !) Look How fabulous her new saori garment looks! she is weaving more and will be back soon for more garment sewing classes..

 Speaking of yarn…. I just recieved from Saori Japan several sets of there textured 21 cone special LIMITED  YARN sets! cone yarn sets

there are several sets each slightly different  from sequins to mini pompoms ribbon and more 

  three layers
  there is quite a lot of yarn tightly wound onto these cones! usually novelty yarns come on spongy balls that look bigger, ar tiny loosly would balls that irritably snarl , BUT you get well behaved yarns unfurling from these cones nicely with out catching when you wind your bobbins! you can see them  in my etsy shop

another new weaver !!
meet megan
her first time ever weaving in a " try it " class !!!

  "oh that is what a shed is!"

the sun came out durning class and the Wx60 loom folded up easily with wheels and  so we were outside set up in no time!. ..

  The plum blossoms were snowing petals smelling fragment  in the warm spring sun….

 what an amazing first weaving! she picked out a branch from the ones i gathered from our property  to tie her  new weaving to and she  then learned how to twist the fringes  to finish it

 Weaving out side on saori looms is  my most favorite fiber  passion!!!
Saori looms are portable and sooo fun.

 Megan you  first weaving is incredible!


Another new loom bag I just sewed! this on fits the saori w60 or sx60 looms. I called this one "Paris paisley fog "
