On Monday I went to a one day workshop at Hansons in Sturminster Newton called "It's a Wrap - Vessels". The tutor was Lynn Horniblow who is also my tutor for free machine embroidery.
We had a great day. We started off with a square of felt (yellow in my case which didn't really inspire me) but by the time we had finished free machining the felt and adding a lining the piece was completely transformed. A white cord was added around the square which needed to be sewn over using a matching thread. The finished article is really pleasing and ideal for those little gifts. Who would have thought it started with a humble piece of felt!!!
Thanks for looking.
