Another fantastic class with Patty Ibarra! If you missed it, check out the link below for a tutorial similar to the project(s) we made tonight. Lots of ways to go with this one in terms of shape and size--and you can fill your winter warmer with rice, corn, or even flax. Cozy!

In the meantime, check out Barbara's class handouts below.
