This is a very creative workshop!
We will not be using a sewing machine on this workshop. All sewing will be done by hand. This is another one that would make a nice present for somebody as you can tailor it to individual taste.
You will be provided with an A5 notebook which we will cover using calico fabric. It will be covered in such a way that you can remove the cover and use it on another book (the same size) should you wish.
We will be decorating the calico with beautiful felt shapes of your choice. These shapes will be cut using my Sizzix Big shot Plus machine. I have a multitude of cutting Dies to chose from including flowers, animals, birds, nautical, hearts, sewing themed, alphabet letters (lower or upper case) ............ along with a large assortment of coloured felt.
We will also be embellishing the calico with embroidery. Don’t worry - if you don’t know any embroidery stitches - I’m on hand to teach you. You really can do some beautiful embroidery using very few basic stitches. I have plenty of embroidery silks to use as well as perle 8 cotton, which I prefer, which I have in a large assortment of colours.
You’ll be amazed what you can do in just a few hours! 🙂
