Hello everyone!


I hope you’ve had a healthy and creative week!


My first (half) term of classes are almost through (this is week 5 of 6) so it’s time to announce next (half) term’s class project!



This is a project for those who not only enjoy a spot of ‘re-purposing’ but also bag construction.  The exterior and lining are reinforced with heavy weight vilene, and the exterior is quilted.




What’s involved?

  • Upcycling your unwanted denim jeans, skirts and shirts (I have a large stash you can avail of!)
  • English Paper Piecing (EPP) – hand sewing the hexies into 2 panels
  • Eyelet Ring handle opening
  • Zippered pocket in the lining
  • Reinforced base


And to make it even easier to make this great shopper, I will have part-kits made up of the following:


    • 37 hexie papers Sizzix cut and hole punched
    • 37 varied pieces of denim for the hexies
    • 4 sets of eyelet rings
    • 1 metre heavy sew-in vilene
    • comprehensive Just Jude Designs pattern with step by step photos


The part-kits are discounted at £13 for those attending the classes.


So the only materials you need to bring with you are:


    • 0.5 metre cotton for the bag lining
    • 1 fat quarter cotton for zippered pocket lining
    • 8″ plastic zipper


Easy peasy!


As always, the class project is optional, and I will be announcing class vacancies at the end of this week!  So stay tuned!


Happy re-purposing!
