Online Interactive Workshop: Zippy Fun!

CraftyMonkies fan-fave & craft expert extraordinaire Sarah Payne returns with a real treat of a class for all who've ever struggled with getting to grips with zips! Sarah's Zippy Fun workshop will teach you all those little tricks & workarounds to help ensure you never dread working with those pesky zippers ever again!...

Introduction by Sarah:-

Just the word 'ZIP' can make people flinch! Many sewists have a fear (if not a downright dread!) of the zip – including me when I first started out on my sewing journey. Well, I am here to help you with that! In this techniques-based class I will take away that fear and show you a range of ways to use zips – and very soon you will be wondering what you were ever afraid of!

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

During this class Sarah will go through:-

  • The Feet - Zipper Foot, Adjustable Zipper Foot, Invisible Zipper Foot. What are they and when do you need to use them?
  • Different types of zips and how to make the most of them
  • Using invisible zips in cushions and clothing
  • Using visible/lace zips as a feature on bags or garments
  • Zips in a bag
  • Tabbed zips
  • Inserting a curved zipper (double or single ended)
  • Pockets with zips
  • Adjusting the size of your zips

This is very much a techniques based class so bring a pen and paper, but you will also get the opportunity to make a simple cosmetic bag with a zip fastening.

Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

This is for beginners and improvers. Get to grips with zips and add a valuable new skill to your stitching tool kit!

Material/Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

In the class we're going to make a simple zip bag! For this you will need:-

  • Two 10 inch squares and a 10 inch by 2 inch strip of fabric for the outside of your bag.
  • Two 10 inch squares of a lining fabric
  • A zip measuring between 6 and 10 inches.
