For the last few weeks as well as
stroking fabric 'working' at the fabulous 'Make & Do' I've been leading a few new workshops for people to dip their toe into some super simple childrenswear. We've been drafting little garments straight onto the fabric using air vanishing markers to create little skirts, shorts and shirred dresses.
With all of the house moving chaos still in full swing I thought I'd share a small selection of pictures of what the ladies have been creating as I've been super lazy with my own projects and have neglected my trusty Bernina of late. It's so nice to see the finished projects -and some of the ladies going on to produce more and more of their own designs... (Steph and Gemma, I'm looking at you!)
The next bunch are scheduled for 28th April (Shirring) 5th May (Shorts) and the 8th May (Pjs). More details on the website.

Fear not though, I'm getting my machine out this afternoon for a bit of a sewing session. But what to make? Anyone who knows me will know that I have a permanent 'To-do' list as long as my arm so there's plenty to choose from! Holiday bag, now-extremely-belated Christmas bag, muslin curtains for our new room ...or perhaps I'll just be selfish and make my Pj shorts I've been looking forward to!
Whilst I decide, I think I'll dye my sofa cover. Here we go, fingers crossed...
