Firstly, may I wish you all a belated (but none-the-less heartfelt) Happy new Year! The studio was a busy place to be in the run up to Christmas with everyone (including myself) hurrying to finish projects before the Christmas holidays began. I’ve been meaning to share these pictures of student work for weeks now, but as time wore on I realised quite how many were destined to become gifts, and i couldn’t spoil the surprise so I’ve waited until even the last presents have been exchanged before sharing these pics with you. As well as all these gorgeous gifts we’ve been busy making a few goodies for ourselves too… After a sluggish start to 2015, the studio is back in full swing, classes all started up this week and many new projects have been gracing the cutting table, but you’ll just have to wait and see… See you next week!... read more
It’s been a busy month at the studio, with lots of new students signing up after The Great British Sewing Bee. Most have started with simple projects such as Pyjama bottoms but there are a few more adventurous first projects, but I can’t show you until they are finished. Here are the fabulous clothes that were made in April.
This term we’ve been really busy and made loads of new things. Bobble hats, bags, purses, PJ shorts, refashioned t-shirts, sunglasses cases for Mothers day, and then Hungry Bunnies for Easter. Applique has been a recurring theme, and I think you’ll agree the results are brilliant! Here is our animal appliqué bag project… And here are the bobble hats, made in just 2 hours… These are a few of the refashioned t-shirts… And because there was a big of spare time, pom-pom purses… Pyjama Shorts (first go at using a commercial pattern)… For Mothering Sunday we made funky sunglasses cases… Then as the last project before Easter, we made Hungry Bunnies… nom, nom, nom… Happy Easter everyone!
