Patchwork Fish Workshop at Treloan Campsite

Hi!
It's been such a long time!
I've been busy with my new baby Belle, she's great fun and crawls about playing with things.

Today I ran a workshop at Treloan Campsite in Portscatho near where I live. Here are the patchwork fish the children made! Aren't they fabulous.




We had great fun choosing fabrics and buttons for eyes, they even hang up on a string. Some of the children made little outfits for them too! 
Hope everyone is having a lovely summer. :)

Sewing Tuesday: Giant eyeball

Hi!
Did you see in the news that this giant eyeball washed up on a beach in Florida? Imagine finding that thing on your morning walk!


They think it might be from a giant squid!

Sewing Tuesday: Glam fish stuffie

Hi!
This week I'm going to show you how to make this glamorous fish.
Strictly Come Dancing has started on TV and so I'm all excited about sequins and sparkles and pink. 
I liked the shape of the fish picture I made last week so I thought I'd use the template again in a different way. :D


Here's how to make your own fish, you can decorate it anyway you want, you don't have to go glam, you could have beads or spots of different coloured felt or anything you like.

Sewing Tuesday: Reverse applique spangly fish picture

Hi! First a quick update from last week's competition, SUSSEXMOUSE won the doodle monster puppet! Well done Marion! She named him Mr Bunting. :)

Now then, back to this week's project.
This week I learned how to reverse applique!
It's where you sew on to layers of fabric then cut the top layer away to show what's underneath.
I made this spangly fishy picture with reverse applique! 


Want to know how to make one? Your shape doesn't have to be a fish it could be any shape you like!
