As I mentioned yesterday, I will be going back to school this semester. I graduated from Texas A&M (Whoop!) in 2007 with a BBA in Finance. I know... boring! But it was "practical"! ; ) Anyway, after graduating I immediately went to work at my mom's quilt shop. I did all of her marketing and updated her website and pretty much anything she needed me to do. Through working for her I taught myself how to use Photoshop and other graphic programs. I loved it!
Anyway, after she lost the shop during hurricane Ike I was worried I wouldn't find a job in graphics since my degree was in FINANCE! I contacted our sales rep from Moda, Jim Salinas, and asked him if there were any positions open. At the time there were none but a few months later (and after alot of prayer) a graphic arts spot opened up in the notions dept! I was excited but also worried that I would not do a good job since I did not go to school for this. Well, it is has been almost two years now and they haven't fired me yet! Woohoo! ; )
I do love my job but there is still so much for me to learn. This is why I have decided to take a few classes this semester.
The thing that has gotten me the most excited about going back to school is this Bow Tie Pouch!
First of all, it has a BOW on it. Second of all, it is my favorite color. Third of all, it has a FREE tutorial.
I know this wasn't designed to be a laptop case but I am converting it into one.
Can't wait to make this precious pouch to tote my MACbaby to and from class!
Ok, now the fun part... What fabrics will I use?!
I love the yellow from Hometown but I really LOVE the numbers & letters from Circa 1934. I think that would be cute for back to school. Ok, how about the yellow for the outside and the numbers or letters for the inside?
I just HAVE to find something to make with those numbers!
I have been drooling over them since they came out. Any ideas?
It worked so well and they have now come out with a new white one which will be great with lighter fabrics.
Gosh I hope they don't give us homework this week because it looks like I have weekend plans. ; )
