The Stitch Needs YOU!

to bring along old (or charity shop finds) t-shirts and jumpers

Why?

Well, we need to start preparing for our debut at the Feast on the 7th June where we will be selling items to help fundraise for our community group so we are asking if anyone can help us gather our supplies.

ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR US

we plan to show and help members how to make the items themselves which they get to keep but, also make another which we can then sell at The Feast in West Norwood.

Upcycled Gadget Cover and Oyster Card Wallet

sound good?

We will be washing the clothing before we start making so, wool jumpers are best as they felt and shrink when added to a hot wash.

As you can see in the example photo above of Ipad / Gadget cases, Iphone sock and Oyster Card holder, you can use different parts of the jumper to embellish and the ribbing can save on sewing as it’s already a stretchy finished edge 🙂

If you are already on our email/newsletter list you will know about this weekends plans…

Saturday 9th May 11am – 2pm

How cool is this hat - you wouldn't know it was a jumper!

Old to New… Hats!

February was all about creating new from old. Up-cycling old jumpers, either from your own wardrobe or from a charity shop that you have spotted that has cool stripes or even garish patterns is a quick way to create a cool hat.

This is a fast project which is great for beginners upwards – everyone created a wearable hat within a couple of hours.
