During last week at weSew both the evening classes (adults and y7+) finished their wooden handled bags. You can buy the wooden handles on line and I then drew a simple pattern in the style of a traditional ‘knitting bag’.
In the infants class we made fabric covers for a packet of travel wipes (well done to Henry Wickes for getting Sewer of the Day) and the juniors persevered with making their gilets. I purchased lovely thick fur but it is proving hard work to sew (not to mention the fur that I have to keep brushing up in the sewing room!). Not long to go before they are finished as most people are now attaching the linings before we turn them in the correct way and attach at the shoulder seams. Pictured are the two winners of Sewer of the Day – Chloe Poore and Rebecca Saunders.
