This course is suitable for beyond beginner sew-ers. It is perfect for anyone who has completed the Sew Confident beginners class. As long as you are comfortable using a sewing machine this is the course for you! If you are unsure of your ability please get in touch and I'm sure I will be able to put your mind at ease!
The Sew Far Sew Good class is a similar format to the Sew Confident beginners. We have different projects each day and a materials list is sent to you upon booking. A list of the projects is below.
1. we make a cute 1950's style pinny with a frill and a patch pocket(time permitting). You will learn about gathering in practise and improve your construction skills!
2. Then we will make a lined bag, with an optional patch pocket on the inside or the outside. We will learn how to put a lining in(there are a few different ways of doing it as you probably know by now) and all about top stitching. We will also learn how to box the bottom corners so the bag has a flat bottom. This is the perfect beach bag and it also can fold away nice and small for going your holidays! Ryanair friendly!
3we will be making a great pair of jammy bottoms using your own jammies as the pattern. You can choose from an elasticated waist or a drawstring. This pattern can be adapted to make shorts too and we'll be using stretchy fabric!
4. we make a top to accompany the jammy bottoms we made last week. This top uses rows of shirring to create shape and has adjustable tie top straps. The shirring technique can be use in maxi skirts and dresses too so it really is a handy technique to master!
5. To finish off the course you have an hour or two that can be used for your own project. Perhaps you would like to start a pattern with guidance, or maybe you want to make another lined bag? Whatever it is this is your time to do as you wish with guidance.
Sew Confident is a fun, social learning environment where peer support comes as standard! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BRING YOUR OWN SEWING MACHINE as machines are provided as well as all the equipment you will need.
Shortly after booking we will contact you to give you a copy of the materials list. Please keep an eye on your junk folder as our emails sometimes find their way there!
