On Tuesday this week I taught my first craft class - a full day workshop making fabric covered boxes - and it was fab!
The class was very small, 3 lovely ladies had booked, none of whom had made these before, they were surprised we actually built the box from scratch, thinking we would be covering a ready made box.
I had made a sample for the shop in their chosen fabrics, and all 3 ladies wanted to make the patchwork tops for their boxes, meaning we didn't quite get them finished, but everyone left with about 30 minutes sewing left to do at home, and eager to finish them - I ended up buying this tilda fabric and making a box at the same time - it was amazing to see 4 identical shaped boxes look completely diferent from each other just because of the fabrics we all chose
Here are the workshop tables with everyones heads missing for camera shyness reasons! :~)
you can see the boxes starting to take shape - looking inside out at this point!
I really wanted to get photo's of everyone with their finished box - one lady has promised to e-mail me a photo of hers - I can't wait to see it!
This particular box size and shape is now for sale as a kit in my folksy shop, including all the precut mount board, wadding and full instructions!
I am still working on the tutorial!!!
