Saturday morning sewing project. 

My lovely daughter Layla decided yesterday that she wanted to make herself a sleep mask. So this morning we started on our mask challenge. We dusted off her sewing machine, which she hadn’t used since her birthday in March. Materials gathered and away we go.

All cut out and ready to sew. She chose unicorn fabric and heart fabric for the lining. With a little help from mum the base was made and elastic attached. Now she wants to embellish it all. ūü§Ē

Out comes the glue gun and away she goes (with my help as that glue is far too hot for a 7 year old). At this stage I think it’s finished but oh no there are more feathers, beads and ribbons until she’s finally happy with her master piece.

Great job Layla, proud of you!

All materials are availible at Mrs Sew n Sew Northampton and the fabric will be in our online shop soon.

Sparkling  Thursday 

Hope you’re all well on this very hot Thursday. Working upstairs at Mrs Sew n Sew on a day like this is hard. It gets very muggy up there and we’re just about to have an ice lolly break. ūüėä

Before that I thought I would share my work with you today.

I’m hand sewing this gorgeous heavy beaded lace on to a commission dress I have been working on. The sun is going to bounce of all these lovely crystals.

Beach bag workshop was a blast

We had such a laugh at last nights beach bag workshop. Sewing, chatting, giggles and tea and biscuits were had by all. Everyone completed a great looking beach bag!

These bags are so large you can use them as beach bags ,bags for life or storage baskets.  Even one was being used as a bag to put birthday presents in, instead of wrapping paper.

More bag workshops to come,  keep an eye out on here and Facebook!

Nan and Granddaughter sewing workshop 

We had a lovely afternoon at Mrs Sew n sew on Friday.  Debz came along with her 7 year old granddaughter Holly to make a Tote bag. This little lady was amazing 

 with her sewing skills. She only started using her machine a week ago and is already a natural. Happy sewing Holly!
