Project 3: My Reading Buddy Softie
My next online hand sewing workshop is on Monday 6th April 4pm PT and 7pm ET which is Tuesday April 7th at 10am in Sydney, Australia.
I’ll be going live on Instagram.
I’ll show you how to sew this little softie, who I call “RB” at the moment as he doesn’t have a name.
RB loves having stories read to him, especially in the garden!
Come join me with the following materials so we can sew a Reading Buddy softie together.
2 pieces of felt 8″ x 6″
Don’t have felt? Fabric works too. You can make your softie bigger or smaller. So don’t worry if you don’t have those exact measurements.
Felt scraps, lace, ribbons, buttons etc for facial features and to decorate.
The usual sewing supplies.
Project 2: The Two Storey House Project
I’ll be going live @colouredbuttons instagram page with my next online hand sewing workshop on Friday 27th March at 10am Sydney time or if you’re in the US that’s Thursday 26th at 4pm PT and 7pm ET.
I’m not telling you what we’ll be making…actually I’ve never made this before so you’ll all be my guinea pigs 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need.
A piece of felt in the shape of a 2 storey house. Mine is 5 inches across, 6 inches high and the roof is 2 inches high.
Part 2 of the two storey house project.
I’ll be live on Monday 4pm PT and 7pm ET to finish the project.
Please come with your felt in the shape of a 2 storey house. Hopefully you’ve had time to decorate your felt with lots of running stitches.
In addition to your usual sewing supplies, please bring a ribbon, lace or cord or a velcro dot. A hot glue gun if you have.
Decorate your felt with a running stitch
Next fold the felt into a purse shape. Use an over stitch to sew the sides together. Glue on the ribbon.
Adding my swing supplies.
Project 1: Heart Softie
If you can’t go to a Global Kids Sewing Party then the Global Kids Sewing Party will come to you with a live online hand sewing workshop.
On Tuesday 24th March at 10am Sydney time, I’ll be doing a live “sewing with kids” workshop on instagram @colouredbuttons and facebook if I can work it out.
I’ll be showing you how to sew this little heart.
What you will need to sew your heart
You’ll need 2 pieces of fabric about 10 inches by 10 inches but smaller is ok too.
Needle: A real sewing needle please. Not a thick blunt one
Thread: Ordinary sewing thread is great.
Stuffing: Commercial stuffing, the inside of a cushion, some old stockings etc
Scissors: Please make sure they cut fabric.
Pencil or marker to draw a heart on your fabric. You may want to make a template for your heart or just draw it freehand.
And you’ll need a fun snack too of course.
Any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will post as soon as I can the heart tutorial from the live workshop, in the meantime her’s how to make a felt heart 🙂
