Makes for Mini Folk workshop with Lisa Stickley


12/06/2018 6:30 pm – 12/06/2018 8:30 pm | Sew Over It Clapham, 78 Landor Rd, London SW9 9PH

Join Lisa Stickley to learn how to make Long Legged Nell, the squishy squashy roundy elephant with super long legs from her new book Makes For Mini Folk (Pavilion £14.99).

Nell is a perfect soft toy to make for a little one, but also a great addition as a quirky cushion for the sofa where she will look right at home sitting up very neatly. She takes a bit of patience to stuff (we recommend a nice slice of cake and cup of tea for this bit!) but just to wiggle Nell’s legs about and give her a squeeze when she is complete, is well worth the effort.

To make Nell come to life you’ll use a simple straight stitch on the sewing machine which means she’s the perfect project for those getting to grips with a sewing machine. There’ll be stitching and clipping of curves, inserting the big floppy ears, a little hand stitching to close her up and hand embroidering for Nell’s eye. Even if you’re a seasoned sewer you’ll find there are still some new skills to learn and a fun project to complete again at home.

All materials are included in the class.
