#FridaySewingClass

What a lovely morning for Sewing! 🧵 Today we carried on with our various projects! Here are some photos of the T-shirt I started tracing a pattern from last week. 👚 ✂️ The paper pattern has been cut out in fabric and this is a recreation of that tee- in a plain black cotton. 😀 #smallbusiness #fabric #sewing #sewingclass #friday #fridayfeeling

Wednesday Night Sewing Class #1 Welcome back ladies! Tonight we made a start on Dress Making by getting to grips with our patterns and starting to cut out our dresses in the actual fabric. Cutting out is the scariest part, I promise! ✂️ Before we start sewing them up next week! 😬 #smallbusiness #pinkflamingo #sewingclass #sewing #fabric #ginpig 🧵👗🐝🎀

#SewingClass

Happy Friday! 🥳 Today was about learning Dress Making a different way, by taking a pattern from an already existing item from our wardrobe - which is a great way to re-create that dress that fits you well! 👗 ✂️ we got as far as taking the pattern from it, before cutting it out and making a practise run in fabric, next week! 😍 But of course it wouldn’t be Friday without a dog bed, a teddy bear and a lot of quilting thrown in for good measure! 😂 If you would like to come along and learn to sew in a friendly, laid back environment, these classes run every Friday morning from Lower Holker Village Hall 10-12pm, £15 per session. Let me know if you would like to join in. #sewing #sewingclass #f
