We are ready to craft and it would be great if you could join us. This year we will be introducing some new crafts just for you at our studio in Leicestershire. We are very much thinking about sustainability and how we can reduce waste and if you know anybody who crafts, you’ll know that they like to keep all their little odds and ends of materials…just in case.
A great way of using scraps of fabric is some patchwork. Large quilts might spring to mind but patchwork is great for smaller projects and compliments denim very well. If you have a hole or worn bit in your jeans now is the time to patch it! Patchwork can be very simple to start with, just cut your fabric remnants or maybe a preloved shirt into squares or strips and then sew right sides together, open out the seams and press. Once you have a few pieces of patchwork then sew then to your garment. This can be a very simple but effective running stich and voila – extra wear from a garment that you may have otherwise discarded.
If you would like to have a rummage through our fabric scraps and try some patchwork why not book onto one of our workshops?.
