We had such a great time getting together this past weekend to teach the Patchwork Glamper. Spending the day before Mother’s Day sewing, chatting and crafting. What more could a mom want to start the weekend off.
The Patchwork Glamper is a fun way to incorporate all those trims, buttons and embellishments you’ve been stashing and a great way to learn many skills like English Paper Piecing (EPP) hexagons and embroidery with low commitment.
It’s so fun to see how each persons creativity shines through when we hold workshops or customers send us pics of items they’ve made with our patterns.
This design is so flexible and forgiving. Each of the girls work was unique. For example…A few of the girls decided to leave out their center hexie and let the flower be the focus and the background fabric shine through.
Or design your own camper to add to the work. Ann wanted her camper to be similar to the one she travels in so she designed her very own and added a little bling.
Or how about how Wendy decided she’d rather have a pillow and tweaked hers to be more square. Check out her cute puppy button in her center hexie!
Jalana had a great idea to repurpose the burlap from a bouquet she received. And check out all the details she added to glamp up her work…her wheel is a adorable!
Jen’s Glamper is so bright and cheery! Her first time at hand sewing hexies and embroidery work. Great job Jen!
Ann finished and framed her Glamper. I think I’m now partial to the tilted letter. It gives it a whimsy feel.
The workshop was so relaxed that us teachers even got in on the action. Paige used her time to refresh her hand sewing skills.
And I finished up my sample while I showed the girls the techniques.
Thanks everyone for participating. We had a great time!
