We’ve hosted a few parties here at the studio before, but a hen party for twelve was our biggest yet!


As the gorgeous bride-to-be Laura is 5 months pregnant, a sewing party with tea and cake was the perfect alternative to the boozy falling-over-on-the-pavement parties that grace the streets of towns up and down the country every Saturday night.

So, out came the MASSIVE tea pot and and cake stands ready for the party guests…


A range of pretty fabrics including Liberty print lawns and funky prints from Ditto were laid out on the table ready for action…

We started by getting to grips with the sewing machines, learning to thread them properly and adjust the settings to make different stitches…


Then choosing our fabrics and cutting and pinning the patterns to the fabric…


As the rest of the girls got speed-happy at the machines…


More cutting, pinning and snipping at the table…


Carefully does it…


I think this is what you might call creative chaos!


Adding the finishing touches, with a little hand sewing.


And after just two hours the girls had all made lavender scented eye masks and little hanging scented hearts, the perfect accompaniment for their relaxing evening of beauty therapies and pampering.


Thankyou girls for making Saturday so much fun, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

And our very best wishes to Laura for her wedding next month and the exciting arrival of her baby in the spring!

Happy sewing! X
