A little impression of the Sun Printing Workshop @ Niche in Rotterdam om the 2nd of September '18. It was a great day with perfect sunny weather to actually use the sun for printing.
Next workshop will be on the 7th of October and there are still a few spots available
Run a mile or a parsec in these basic leggings made for 4-way stretch fabrics.
These easy to sew leggings are a great canvas for bold prints or for adding your own style lines. The leggings are a quick and easy project, because the sewing pattern only has one piece, there is no side seam, only an inseam.
It features 3 inseam lengths and an elastic waist. The pattern has a lot of negative ease and works best with 4-way stretch fabrics with at least 70% crosswise stretch and 50% lengthwise stretch.Continue reading

There are many ways to store your embroidery floss, but here's my favorite. I have a lot of skeins that I use during workshops, so I need to unpack them and pack them in a way that keeps the colours together. If you knit you've probably already recognise the stitchholder i'm using. It was an epiphany when I finally realized I could use them to organize my embroidery floss. I can store 12 skeins on one pin and then stack all the skeins into a clear box where they sort of hold themselves up.
These are 13,5cm stitchholders from prym. You can find these and many others on Amazon (affiliate link)
For the last few weeks, I’ve been working on my first class for Skillshare and today it’s officially live!
My class is on hand embroidery, where you’ll learn how to embroider blossom using only a few embroidery stitches. It's great for a total newb, but if you are a seasoned embroiderer there might be some new techniques and ideas for you too and the class includes the cherry blossom pdf pattern and a branch sampler pattern.
And it's no april's fool joke! Because for the last 1,5 years I've been teaching many creative workshops on sewing and embroidery in The New Habderdashery. I loved it wanted to keep teaching and thought it would be fun to continue teaching workshops not only offline but online too.
If you’re not familiar, Skillshare is an online learning community with thousands of classes on everything from business to graphic design to sashiko embroidery and sewing – it’s the Netflix of learning.
By using this link to my class to sign up for a Skillshare Premium Membership, not only will you be able to enroll in my class, but you’ll also gain access to all other classes on Skillshare starting with a two-month free trial.
If you know of anyone else that’d be interested to learn Blossom Embroidery Class, I’d appreciate if you’d share the link with them too.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
