‘Sat On Park Bench Like a Pair of Tweed Book Ends’


Choose from a range of pure wool tweeds, herringbone and tartan to create a stylish, unique pair of Dormouse Bookends! Using beautifully soft velvet or organic cotton for the tails, the Bookends have a wonderful tactile quality as well as looking fabulous!


Guided through the process by designer maker/teacher Vikki Walsh of Mae Kandoo, you will work from a pattern to cut and construct each Dormouse. You will need to be confident in using a sewing machine as you manipulate the fabric to stitch curved seams and assemble the pieces to inset a circular base.  Once the main body of each Dormouse has been filled, you will hand stitch features to finish constructing each bookend. A simple design with a bespoke quality that will add charm to your bookshelf!
I fell in love with these bookends which I came across in Colchester Red Lion Book Shop. Jo very kindly put in me contact with Vikki and I am thrilled that she teaches and know this workshop will be great fun.  All materials included.
