This term the weekend sewing classes have been busy with students making all kinds of different projects. I have uploaded a few of them to the smallthingsmade flickr site.
Rose is 10 and over a number of Saturday afternoon classes she made this reversible jacket from the Make it Perfect ''Uptown Girl" pattern. Rose has done a number of sewing classes with me in the past and this was her first big project. It involved lots of pining, sewing, concentration and imagination (as it took a while before it started looking like a jacket!). The result is such an achievement and it looks fantastic on.
The next lot of weekend sewing classes will start in Term 4 on October 19. For bookings and details please visit here.

Weekend Young/Teen Sewing workshops for ages 10+ are a great way to learn to sew. Over three Saturday afternoon sessions, students will learn the basics of machine sewing and make some garments and objects of their choice from the smallthingsMade's selection of Young/teen projects. Students may also bring their own projects to the classes if they have had some machine experience. Spaces are limited to ensure everyone benefits from personal attention .....more information can be found here.

Thanks to all the students that came to the June/July School Holiday Classes with smallthingsMade. The week was a buzz of little fingers making and creating.

|Up-Cycle Shirt to Skirt|
Holiday Sewing Classes for June/July are now ready to book into!
Classes will run between Fri 28 June to 5 July.
These holidays smallthingsmade has a few things to get excited about. Firstly, the hall where the classes are held has had a little upgrade. A new kitchen has been installed, the floors have been polished and walls painted!
Secondly, a new class has been added to the Young/Teen Sewing for ages 10+. Students will become environmentally conscious fashionistas. They will learn the technique of Up-cycling by transforming a men's button-up shirt into a skirt for themselves. Check out the class here.
And finally, the very popular Hand Embroidery Class ages 6+ will have a new design for students to embroider. Brisbane illustrator/designer Gail runs an Etsy store Shy Lily and Dakota. Gail makes beautiful cards, mini dioramas, message boxes and wedding zines. She has drawn a sweet new illustration for smallthingsmade students to embroider.
For those students with some machine skills that would like to make their own project, please email me and we make arrangements. Looking forward to seeing many of you in the Holidays.
