Student Creations

As I have travelled around this fall I have been over whelmed with the finished projects from my patterns that my students have brought to share with me. I have always considered my patterns a starting point for each one of you to create your own project that is a reflection of yourself. Here are a few I would like to share which are available as patterns or books on my website. www.suespargo.comThistledown Table Rug by Barb Wigmer of MI.I love the golds and oranges that she used in her applique. Kenyan tote by BJ Kelly of Ohio. This is one of my favorite totes as it has leather handles and is very spacious for all my sewing and knitting projects. The Savannah Satchel by Robin Wallace from Maryland. The Savannah Satchel by Amy Lobsiger from MI. This pattern is from my 'Urban Sacs' book which included four different totes. The Journey Tote made by Judy Edenborough from Australia. The Journey Tote by Judi Daud from Chiloquin, OR. This bag is in the 'Urban Sacs' book.
When I was in Sisters, OR in October Debbie Potter from Vancouver, WA shared her tote with me. She made the block for the needle case which I had in the October American Patchwork and Quilting. Instead of making the needle case she put it on the from of her bag. It looked fabulous! Betty Holmes from Klamath Falls, OR made my Elizabeth Sewing kit using some of the blocks from the Folklore book. Tracy Brown from LaCenter, WA made the Elizabeth using a wonderful selection of wools and fabrics. Tracy Brown also made her version of the 'Sew Your Seeds' needle case. I love the colors she used.
I am in Houston traveling home. I had a great time in Harlingen and will be sharing the class once I have downloaded the pictures.
Keep creating


  1. Eye candy extraordinaire! What lovely patterns and colours!

  2. I enjoyed seeing all the wonderful items that others have made with your designs. I downloaded the needle keeper pattern and hopefully I will find time to make it as a gift.


  3. Great ideas and wonderful use of fabrics, wools, buttons and stitching. Love all the eye candy.
