Crafternoon Cushion Making

Hello Monday oh so Blue Monday,

This Saturday is my first Crafternoon Tea of 2016 back at Derby Museums. I wanted to share today some for the lovely makes from our last class in September and why I love to make cushions.

Cushions are a great start into sewing, you can get used to the handle of the sewing machine by using straight stitches in straight lines. I teach how to lock the stitch at the end and finish the seams.

I love hosting the workshops at Derby Museums in the old kitchen with the sewing machines set up in the old brewhouse. A really unique setting. The classes are aimed at any level, if you are more advanced you can experiment with the fabrics and pattern matching. Tea and cake is always provided as you create your own bespoke cushion as you need fuel for sewing right?

This month we are sewing envelope cushions including constructing our own patterns and making a decorative wrap. I love mixing up different fabrics to make the envelope cushion and then decorating with faux flowers and vintage fabrics.

I also love to see what fabrics everyone uses too. Last time I held the class we used lots of creams and decorated our cushions with the threads provided.

We only have two places left on the afternoon class starting at 1.45pm, due to a cancelation. Contact me at info@crafternoonteahostess {dot} co {dot} uk for more information,

Happy Crafting!
