Online via Crowdcast
Eeek! 🐭 I'm so excited to introduce our most popular kids sewing party project as an online workshop. This is an approachable, fun way to introduce simple sewing techniques to children ages 7+.
Crafting with siblings? Add additional material packs and sew together around the same screen.
Join me for some sewing and learn how to make your own mouse in a matchbox bed! ✂️
🧵 Sewing is such a fun way to spend a morning, and these mice are just the cutest!
✂️ Learn something new: we're going to cover back-stitch and over-stitch in this workshop
🌈 Get a boost of creativity and inspiration to keep making... continue making accessories for your mouse after the workshop!
You'll have a lovely little mouse friend by the end of this workshop. 🐭💕
What you'll need:
A material pack comes with the purchase of this workshop! The only additional item you'll need to make your mouse is a pair of scissors.
If your pack doesn't arrive in time for the live workhsop, don't worry. You can watch live and make later, or catch up using the replay once your pack has arrived in the mail!
How does this workshop work?
This workshop takes place on Crowdcast, which you can access SUPER easily via your phone, laptop/desktop or tablet. I'll email the workshop link after purchase send you a reminder shortly before we go live.
Crowdcast works best on Google Chrome if you're on desktop, or through the Crowdcast app if you're on mobile. But I've tested it with mates in all scenarios and it works 👌🏻. Simply click the link a couple minutes before the workshop and wait for me to go live.
You won't be on camera, you won't have to mute a mic. It'll just be me, broadcasting from The Sewcial Circel HQ. There's a chat function & a spot for you to ask questions.
If you can't join live, don't worry, the replay will be available to re-watch right after we finish the live session.
Tips for parents:
- Join the workshop from a table, where your child can sit and watch
- Lay everything out on the table before the workshop
- Put a piece of A4 paper on the table to protect it from glue
- Enjoy a cuppa before we begin so you can lend a hand if the thread gets tangled
- One thing I've learn from years of teaching kids to sew is that perfection doesn't matter. If there's a knot, I just tuck it inside and keep going.
- Encourage them to try it first before stepping in
Can't wait to craft together! X
