My living room will be transformed into a lovely fabric workshop with a long table and chairs. About eight children will be able to sit round at a time. I and a friend or two will be on hand all the time to help them make pictures, mini bunting, or a lavender bag.
Below are a few photos of pictures that I made years ago. Since then I’ve made lots of other things but I’ve always wanted to go back to making pictures as I love it so much.
I will pre cut some of the shapes from all sorts of fabric, some of it vintage. I’ve been collecting fabric for a very long time so have lots to choose from. Children will have a piece of card and I’ll help them choose what they want to do and they can do the gluing if they like or I can do it if they prefer.
If they like, instead of making a picture they can make 2 meters of bunting. I’ll help them to choose the fabric they like and I or a friend will sew it on the sewing machine. I’ll have two friends there who are both professional machinists.
Children can come anytime between 11am and 5 pm can stay for up to an hour. biscuits will be provided and hopefully they’ll have great fun. They can bring friends or siblings and if they come on their own we shall do our best to ensure that they feel welcome and at home. We are all mothers and being with children comes very naturally.
Another option available will be custom made sleeping bags. Your child should bring his or her doll or teddy (or ducky, monkey ….) and we will help choose the fabrics of choice to make a lovely little sleeping bag for it.
I’ll be making mini fabric bunting with children too which they can take home with them.
I’ll have lots of fabric to choose from including bits of vintage.
Parents can stay in the room if they like or wander around and see the array of amazing and unique things on offer including handmade ceramics, vintage fabric lavender bags, floral jugs, cushions, cards, bunting and more. There will be home made cake and you can wander round the garden if you like.
Cost per child will be £6 each.
I have public liability insurance and am CRB checked.
