Christmasfy Your Jumper Workshop
This one is great for all ages! Make your uniform or clothing more festive by sewing small removable touches to your jumper that can be taken off if desired after the New Year.
Brighton folks, join us at the Open Market to get inspiration and Christmasfy any item of clothing on Sunday 19th December.
This bag is a perfect project for beginners and children as it doesn’t require a sewing machine. Just use your hands! Made from strips of old sports t-shirts, the tote is stretchy with loads of space to fill. Once you get into the rhythm of tying the knots it becomes very theraputic.
Brighton folks, join us at the Open Market and make your own macramé bag on Sat 20h February.
This cute collar is the perfect accessory, designed to be reversible for endless outfit combinations! The quilting adds dimension making it sturdier and more cosy for winter.
