Saturday Sewing Sessions

Faye and I decided we wanted to learn how to sew. I did textiles at school, but it's a long time since I was sixteen...so we found a class. Introducing Saturday Sewing Sessions.

We opted for the 'make your own make up case' class as it had all the skills we wanted to learn, all the basics! After being invited into the very cute studio and given a warming, and much-needed cup of tea...

...we were walked through the basics of using a sewing machine.

A couple of blips and we were doing test stitches!

We picked out our fabrics and zips for the make-up bags and, after a short tutorial on how to put it together, we set to work.
