‘Macsen Bear’ is a new workshop for 2017. Made using my nephew’s old baby grows, ‘Macsen Bear’ was featured in the February issue of Sewing World. Cuddly toys are always great presents for children and can be made using small scraps of fabrics or even old clothes from the children themselves to really make it personal! Memory bears are also a great way of keeping a loved one close to your heart, by making a bear using their clothes.
Duration of workshop: 3 hours.
Number of places: 2-4 max.
Cost: £40. Stuffing for the bear, buttons for the eyes and nose and ribbons for the neck are included in this price.
Fabrics can be purchased by the metre and fat quarters at the workshop. You can request a photo of current fabrics in stock to help you decide before you come. You can also bring your own. I recommend using 3/4 different fabrics within the design.
I would suggest a handful of fat quarters in a range of colours if you bring your own. If you choose to use baby grows, you will need to use interfacing also to stop them stretching. You can ask me about this on booking.
