#SewingClass No.3

#SewingClass No.3 #Bunting week! ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŽ€ We are half way through making and have even added on an extra week so we can fit in more #sewing. We have split this project between the two weeks so today was spent cutting out and designing the flags, ready to complete the bunting next week. Preparing the bunting was a repetitive task but it was all good sewing practice! If you are interested in learning how to sew, keep your eyes peeled for future lessons. #fashion #handmade #project #crafts #fabric #pinkflamingoshorts

#Sewing - The Basics

Good Morning! I haven't done a #NatashaMakes post for a while. Things have been very chaotic with work / sewing and teaching my new sewing classes. But I found this great chart for anyone beginning to learn how to sew. We touched on a few of these things in sewing class #1 but I wish I had found this sooner . It basically describes everything you need to know, from fabric grain to terms you will come across throughout sewing..without over complicating anything! This is pretty much everything you need to know, before you get started!

#Edinburgh

Hello! This weekend I have been in Edinburgh. I've had a great time! Lots of eating, drinking, shopping and exploring. We even managed a walk up to Arthur's Seat, the view off the top was well worth the effort. We didn't realise until we got up that we actually hiked up the difficult side and came down the easy way. It was a really clear day and you could see for miles off the top. George has had a fab weekend! Back to sewing now I'm home. I have lots of orders coming in, as I said last week, I am working 4-5 days behind schedule due to sewing class, day jobs and the amount of orders coming in. So bare with me and your order will be made and posted as soon as humanely possible!

Sewing Class no.1

Yesterday I taught my first sewing class! I absolutely loved it and can't wait to do it again. We made tote bags! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป It was a small group of 3 ladies (best to start small) who each brought their own machines and fabrics. I supplied the patterns and we made Tote bags. I thought it was a simple enough project but one that I could use to teach the sewing basics. Next week we are making Toiletry / wash bags. This class will run for 3 more weeks with a new project each week, so I will keep you posted! If anybody is interested in learning to sew, "follow" my FaceBook page ( ThePinkFlamingoDesigns) and keep an eye out for future lessons! I am hoping for One to One lessons or Friday morning sess
