About the Event
Sarah Payne - Thursday 24 September 2020 - 6.00pm to 9.00pm (BST)
Online Interactive Workshop: Scrappy Elephant Fun Cushion
This striking Scrappy Elephant Fun Cushion is one of Sarah Payne's most recognisable cushion designs and she is delighted to be sharing it with the CraftyMonkies. This fun cushion is a great stash-buster and you can go as wacky as you like with your fabric choices. You can choose to embellish your elephant with embroidery stitches included on your sewing machine to truly create a unique character.
This cute little cushion can be as scrappy as you like and makes a great gift. The design uses 2 ½ inch strips, but you can make the strips narrower if that is what you have! Just have fun playing!
Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop are as follows:-
• This toy can be made from scraps or from left over bits of jelly roll (10 strips will be plenty) and 4 fat quarters will give you a nice selection, or a carrier bag of scraps.
• 40cms of light or medium weight sew-in interface
• Matching buttons for eyes
• Bag of toy stuffing
No pre-cutting required!
Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop are as follows:-
• Sewing Machine in good working order – with manual, and standard sewing machine feet. If you are unfamiliar with your machine, please take a few minutes to practice stitching in a straight line. You will need no further skills than that!
• Sewing threads in neutral colours (Cream, Ecru, Greys – bring what you have!) and coloured swing machine threads for embroidery stitches.
• Rotary Cutter (45mm rotary cutter is the best size) and mat (18” x 24 approx so a fat ¼ fits on it easily) – please check that the cutting blade is sharp.
• Rulers – Easy Rule 2 (long ruler) and any Square Rulers you have hidden away will be useful.
• General Sewing Kit (pins, scissors, stitch ripper).
• Optional – Craft Iron and Ironing Mat
Tickets for this Online Interactive Workshop (via the Zoom platform) will be limited & allocated on a first-come/first-served basis! Ticket price is based on ONE person attending this workshop.
