Day Four From Georgia Boot Camp!  

Kip pulled a photo  from his iPad and said "I'd like to make this one." We used templates eight and six to recreate this design. He added an interlining and valance welt cord for more body. 
Liz wanted to make the "Poodle Skirt" valance, using template number six, but she kicked it up a notch by adding valance welt and a wide flat piping. She "fussy" cut the valance sections so each fold would have the same flower centered!

Day Two of  Georgia Boot Camp
Liz and Kip have out done themselves today with these two treatments. They're cutting out another design as I write this. 

Liz used my template #6, and fussy cut 5 sections, giving her a valance with a flower center on each  section. She topped it off with double trim, making a taupe welt cord and a bias flat piping trim. 

Kip used a polka dot accent fabric for his empire valance which used templates #s4, 3 & 12.  

Then he fussy cut the leftover polka dot accent fabric so his welt cord would have both colors evenly spaced. 

I can't wait to see what they make tomorrow!

Greetings from Boot Camp Georgia 2017!

I have two exceptional students: Kip and Liz, this week in my window treatment boot camp! Today they each made a custom Rod Pocket window treatment from start to finish! 

They learned how to "read" the fabric, deign, cut, sew, and dress their treatment. 

In addition, they completed several workbook techniques. We're staying in a most amazing home on the water. As you can see by the back drop, it doesn't get any better than this! I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring! 

Join us tomorrow to see what they'll create next!
