I had a lovely time last weekend teaching a friend to sew. She bought an old manual Singer from me to learn how to use a sewing machine, and we had fun playing around with a variety of specialised feet as well. As a useful beginner’s project she made a 3.5 metre length of bunting (consisting of nine flags), using vintage and antique and-embroidered fabrics. The fabric was cut from damaged items, so it was a good up-cycling project too. In between teaching I started to make a length of bunting of my own, which I plan to finish this weekend- photo to follow!
