Join us after school from 3:15 - 4:45, Monday Sept 28 - Thursday Oct 1st for a kid's dye/embroider/sew class inspired by the Hold-My-Stuff Bag from the wonderful kids' craft book Sewing School by my good friend, Andria Lisle and her co-author, Amie Plumley.
MONDAY! We will dye our muslin fabric in the little kid-safe YaloRun dye kitchen. We will choose from blueberries, strawberries, muscadines, or whatever else we can think of!
TUESDAY! We will embroider a little design on our hand-dyed muslin! You will draw a beautiful little design ( flowers? self-portrait? your dog? your name?) and sew it onto your fabric so that it will show on the outside of your bag.
WEDNESDAY! We will finish embroidering your design & cut your bag pattern! We will also pick what you will use for your bag handle. A ribbon? A rope? A strip of cool fabric you find in my vintage scraps ( yes! do this!)
THURSDAY! We will sew our bags together and be proud to show our sewing skills to the world with our new stuff-tote.
This class is for elementary through junior high. Fee is $70 for the week. All materials included. Your child will learn hand-dyeing with natural material, embroidering, pattern cutting and hand sewing. Class size limited so sign up HERE!
