Kids sewing workshop





Another kids workshop: this time Leoni and her friends made bags lovely tote bags. We used the geometric fabric from Farbenmix as it already has the bag pattern printed on it which only had to be cut out and sewn together.
If you're interested in sewing classes for children during the holidays, the programme is now online:

Linen jacket

While on holiday in Germany last year, I bought some rusty coloured linen fabric. At the time I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to use it for, but as you know, sometimes you need the fabric first before the right pattern comes along :-)
I chose this blouse pattern from McCall's, made a toile to see the fit and only had to do some minor adjustments. And as the linen was slightly to heavy for a blouse I just wear it as a jacket.

Sewing a cushion

They've all had a ball and asked if they could come back for another one..... Here's what they made:

New tunics for me,...

...long sleeved, as there's still no sight of summer in Scotland :-( The green one is McCalls pattern 7122 in Happy Dots jersey and the other one is Butterick 5925 in Tree and Tree Combi jersey, both organic fabrics from Lillestoff. Very comfy!
