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!

KITS!

I don’t mean to worry you, but Christmas is less than 3 weeks away!

 

Eeeeekkkkk!

 

I need to get my ‘Christmas shopping skates’ on!

 

But if you need a few ideas for what to buy a fellow sewist (or yourself!!) then how about a kit?

This is an exciting new feature of my shop and I currently have 2 types to choose from:

 

Hexie Framed Purse Kit:

 

p1080104

 

Framed purses are so versatile and make great gifts.  These hexie purses mean you can indulge in a little hand sewing (English Paper Piecing) as well as machine quilting and construction.

 

p1120850

 

You can choose from a ‘Mixed’ Kit in bright rainbow colours, or a ‘Tilda’ Kit (4 ranges to choose from). Everything you need to make the purse is in the kit, including the pattern and templates. You can see a full list of the kit contents here.

 

Hexie Notebook Cover Kit:

p1120644

 

If you know someone who enjoys journalling, keeping recipes, class notes etc. then a removeable A5 notebook cover could be the perfect gift!

 

Again the techniques combine pre-cut hexies with machine quilting and construction, and you can add in some embroidery details too.

 

p1120732

 

The kits are available as ‘Brights’ (multi coloured hexies with Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Denim) or ‘Tilda’ (with Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax).

 

The kit includes everything you need to make the notebook cover, all pre-cut and ready to sew.  You also get the pattern and an A5 spiral notebook.

So that could be one less pressie to think of, right?

 

Happy shopping!
