Children’s Pyjama shorts

Children's workshop

This workshop is a brilliant opportunity to introduce your child to a sewing machine. Sewing is a life skill and a wonderful skill to gift.

In this session your child will make their very own shorts! We will explain how a sewing machine works and how to sew (with an emphasis on beginning, finishing and respecting your seam allowance). This is a great project for the beginner.

All you need to do is drop them off with their choice of fabric (see below).

We’ll give them a drink and a biscuit and have them waiting with their new shorts.

Our tutor is DBS checked.

This session is open to 8 years and over.

How will I be taught?

Your child will be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced children’s tutor, through demonstration and guidance as they work.

 

With the opportunity to ask questions throughout, your child will get the best experience they can whilst making sure everything is clear.

 

Our tutor is DBS checked.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

This workshop is open to 8 years and over and is the perfect opportunity for your child to be introduced to a sewing machine.

Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?

You do not need to have a sewing machine as we will be using the machines in our studio.

For this project you will need 1m of fabric (assumed width at least 115cm wide) and 1m of elastic (1.5-2cm wide)

Cotton dress fabrics with a multi-directional pattern work best.

 

What will I take home with me?

Their own handmade pair of shorts.

Since my first attempt at appliqué, aged 7, my downtime has centred around stitch-crafts. Through the intricate details of hand embroidery, to the precision of dress making, the artful skills of patchwork and quilting and more recently the creative freedom of machine appliqué; I have spent a lifetime indulging my passion for creating with fabric and thread. As a science teacher I have worked with teenagers for over 25 years. I am currently completing a level 3 City and Guilds in Patchwork and Quilting and am now fortunate enough to be able to combine my abilities in teaching with my lifelong hobby. I believe that it’s the imperfections of hand-crafts that make such items unique, and the energy and thought that goes into their creation that makes them the treasured items they become. Happy stitching.
