Mrs. Ella Pearl Webb©

My beautiful paternal grandmother who my other siblings and I, even my mother (when around us), and cousins,  called “Grandma”, Mrs. Ella Pearl Webb. 

Saved! She loved to sew! I can remember her patterns being out on the table when I was little, she also made me and my older sister dresses, baked rolls, cooked, loved to dress, classy in style, hats and all, and loved Doublemint & Spearmint gum! 

(That’s not all I remember about her.) 

It’s something how I can remember her food while writing this, how it looked, and some of the things she would make. 

Mothers and Grandmothers play an important role in their children and grandchildren’s lives.  #GrandMa 💜

Sewing 101

I took a Sewing 101 class at JO-ANN fabric and craft stores® Saturday and made this cute drawstring bag! 🙂

Drawstring Bag

The class was in a instructional and hands on format with supplies included. We learned the basic supplies needed to begin sewing, the different types of fabrics and their uses, basic instructions on determining the size and amount of fabric needed for a pattern (from the back of a pattern), learned how to thread a sewing machine and bobbin, practiced sewing stitches, toured the store where we viewed the location of the pattern books, how to pull a pattern by number, the variety of threads available, the variety of scissors, the location of different accessories, needles, fabrics and their uses, the location of foam, and buttons and their uses (there are buttons that are non-washable).  Something that I didn’t know! 🙂

The best part of the class for me was using the sewing machine!  We practiced sewing stitches, using different speeds, back stitching (using the reverse button),and made a cute drawstring bag (pictured above)! 🙂

The class was educational and inspiring to sew and to learn more about sewing! 🙂
