Choose from a range of pure wool tweeds, herringbone and tartan in traditional Christmas colours 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! :  Combining wool and velvet textures, the bookends are tactile , practical and contemporary..and Im delighted to have Vikki back again on what promises to be a super Christmassy workshop!

Description

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 from Tweed and Tartan. 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!
All materials included – participants can choose to make a pair of non-Christmassy mice too – but let me know upon booking.
