Welcome to my Spring into Summer ’19 series, looking at the items on display in our studio for this new term.

 

First up is our display table (I’ll be mixing up the order as shown but stay with me!).

 

Spring into Summer 19 Table Display

 

I try to theme (or semi-theme) the table each term.  Apart from an obvious summery feel, I think you’ll see another theme emerging as we look at the items.

 

Spring into Summer '19

 

1 Aprons:

(Tie Back Apron pattern available here)

 

Apron Workshop Aug19

 

You may remember seeing my aprons on display last term.  I decided to leave my dressed mannequin again this term because we are running our 3rd Apron workshop in August (booking available here).  In this workshop you can choose from either a tie back apron (pictured) or the Japanese style cross back apron (see here).

 

2 Kids Tote Bags:

 

Kids Workshop May19

 

These simple and fun makes are samples for my upcoming children’s workshop.

 

 

I have 4 girls and 2 boys registered to learn how to use a sewing machine and let their textile creativity loose!

 

 

 

Children are a joy to teach because they don’t overthink it and are so creatively uninhibited!  We adults could learn alot from them!

 

10 Beach Bag:

 (pattern available here)

Beach Bag Workshop

 

This is my big and roomy beach bag (first featured in Pretty Patches magazine).  It features water resistant Rip-Stop Nylon lining, mesh or cotton exterior pockets and a detachable ‘wet bag’ for your soggy bikini, or drippy sun lotion bottles!

 

Beach Bag (Pretty Patches Aug16)

 

I’ve made a few of these practical bags over the years, and they’ve even been road tested by my girls on their holiday!

 

Bethany's Beach Bag

 

If you’d like to join us at our Beach Bag workshop, you can book in here.

 

12 Flex Frame Glasses Case:

(free tutorial available here)

 

Flex Frame Sunnies Pouch

 

If you need a secure glasses or sunglasses case, how about my flex frame glasses case.

 

Sunglasses flex frame pouch

 

The tutorial covers 2 sizes (the bigger size is for wrap around sunglasses which don’t fold flat) and the applique glasses template is also available.  You can purchase flex frames from here.

 

So that wraps up part 1 of Spring into Summer ’19.

 

Tune in again when we look at the inspiring creativity of one of my favourite quilt designers!

 

Happy sewing!

Last Saturday I ran the first of 3 Apron workshops!

 

Nine ladies stitched their little hearts out on either my Tie Back Apron pattern or the Japanese Cross Back Apron.

Every seam in these aprons are finished to perfection! And they are easily adapted to suit every body shape too!
