Last Saturday we had my first all day workshop at the Mill.

 

Flex & Framed Purses workshop

 

Myself and 9 adventurous ladies settled in a for a St.Paddy’s Day knees-up with a difference!

 

Flex and Framed Purses were the order of the day, with lots of tea, coffee and craic thrown in!

By lunchtime the ladies had reached the half-way mark by conquering the tricky glue stage on one side of their purse frames!

Then it was onto the flex frame glasses cases.  Sadly I forgot to take some pictures, so trust me when I say they turned out brilliantly!

I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a lot of fun, and now have 2 more handmade gift ideas for next Christmas!

 

 

And if you enjoy a little EPP (English Paper Piecing) but hate all the cutting out, my newly listed Hexie Framed Purse Kits are available again in my Etsy shop.

 

Happy sewing!

Often the smallest and quickest sewing projects can bring the most pleasure.

 

I’ve curated some of my free tutorials for you, in a ‘Stocking Filler’ collection!

 

 

Who wouldn’t love a framed purse in their stocking, or a handy little glasses case?

Keyfobs are such a useful accessory, as our my stacking nesting boxes (you can use these on desks for stationery or for keeping those beauty essentials organised on a dressing table!).

 

 

My towel backed bibs make sure the youngest members aren’t excluded (yes of course they have their own stocking!). Make them in cute Christmas fabrics for ‘baby’s first Christmas’!

Use 2.5″ squares for these festive patchwork bibs

 

And if you need to create a little more intrigue for a small gift, pop it into one of my gift bags! Isn’t the opening of presents just as much fun as the presents themselves?

You can find even more Christmas themed tutorials here on my tutorials page.

 

And check out my new Christmas tutorials Pinterest board for more ideas from around the web!

 

Now you’ll never be stuck for super seasonal sewing stocking stuffers! (try saying that after a few Baileys!)

 

Happy sewing!
