Last Weekend’s Sewing for Babies & Kids Workshop

Fantastic results from last weekend’s Sewing for Babies and Kids workshop:

babieskids1Marilena with her gorgeous baby girl’s dress.  She made such a good job of it; everything was so neat and she’d previously just sewn cushions, bags, things involving straight lines!

babieskids2Just one of the pairs of trousers Charlotte made for her little boy.  Stripes were the order of the day and she went home with a 2nd pair just needing elastic and hems and plans to make a pair for herself with one of my other patterns!

babieskids3Chloe and her lovely wintery boy’s trousers in lightweight soft chocolate brown corduroy and contrasting red pockets. We ummmed and aahhhhed collectively about what colour to do the pockets……..I think red was the right choice!

Don’t just take my word for it, here’s what they thought of the day:

“Such a wonderful day!  I’m so proud of myself!  Wendy’s instruction makes you feel like you can tackle anything.”

“I enjoyed another great afternoon with Wendy at MIY Workshop today.  I learnt lots of new skills and make my little boy a pair of trousers.  Wendy is a fantastic teacher.  Great classes.  Highly recommend!  Thanks Wendy!”

“Very enjoyable class with helpful instructions and really pleasing results!  Now I want to have a girl so I can come back and make a dress!”

The next “Sewing for Babies and Kids” workshop is on Sunday 12th May.  Contact Wendy on 01273 775951 or 693451 or miyworkshop[at]gmail.com to book your place.



The first “Sewing for Babies and Kids” workshop

Yesterday was the first “Sewing for Babies and Kids” workshop and I was very impressed with the end results.

Isabel made these lovely wintery trousers for her nephew using one of my patterns and did a great job of matching up the checks at the seams!

Tania used a pattern she’d bought and after much battling to fit the pattern into not quite enough fabric, caught up brilliantly and went home with just some elastic to put into the neckline and the hem to sew.  Incidentally, this is the first thing Tania’s made from a pattern and she only started sewing in September when I saw her for a one-to-one session to learn how to use her sewing machine.  Impressed!

And last, but not least, Dee, Helen and Romy decided to use my girl’s dress pattern.  They all look lovely, but soooo different just through the different choices and combinations of fabrics.

I’ll definitely be running this workshop again next year and here’s some of the other patterns available to use:
