Another Folk House workshop, this time skirt in a day, we used an Alison Willoughby pattern shape, but concentrated more on the making rather than the embellishment, although some participants were going to add more at home after the workshop

An improvers sewing workshop, making applique purses, everyone came up with their own design and then we learnt how to put it together and sew in a zip, Shame I didn't photograph everyones as there were lots of nice ones!
Last week I ran a 'Learn to sew and make an Apron workshop' at Bristol Folk House, here are just a few of the outcomes, some really nice aprons.. and everyone learnt a lot about using a sewing machine, ready to tackle their own projects!
See what the group have been up to....
this is going to be part of a larger quilt
Some cushion covers in progress, just to remind us it's autumn
A laptop bag, now almost done and it looks great!
Technically this is from my Retro sewing class, but also uses recycled fabrics and it looks great!
