Our Holiday Sewing Workshop - Lavender Ladybugs and Potted Fabric Flowers

Fabulous Makes!

Last Friday morning I was lucky enough to spend the morning with a lovely group of girls making fun projects at the Hope & Gloria Children's Holiday Workshop.

I have to say that these projects count among some of my favourite things that I have designed for children to make over the years and it was a true delight to see them taking shape at the workshop.

The original designs

We began with our materials and things went from this....

....to this. I love Amelia's flower - such a fabulous choice of colours and fantastic stitching!

There were lots of lovely bright and bold colours used to make the flowers and they all looked brilliant. We filled the flowers and ladybugs with beautifully scented Lavender and the room was filled with it's soothing fragrance.

A huge well done to all who came along. Looking forward to seeing you again soon for more creative sewing projects.
