What's new at Bella Jean Boutique

We were given this shelf and see what we've done with it. We're always looking for new and better ways to display our items.These girls came over and I helped them to sew these taggie blankets for their new baby sister.
And I (Vic) and working on these patio door curtains. They are quite a big job. All that's left is the hem. That will come after I fit them on the door.

Sewing Classes

We are giving sewing classes every day to young girls. It has been quite fun. The girl's are very excited about sewing and seem to enjoy being here. Sometimes they get a little too excited and like to talk a lot.
Our classes consist of 3 - 4 students for an hour session. Right now most of them are making doll quilts out of squares we have cut to teach them straight lines. Part of their excitement is making things that they like to have.
