Last week, I was invited to attend this awesome craft workshop by The Crafty Hen, kindly organised by Hillarys Blinds and Joe Bloggers. I must admit that I’ve never been inclined to hand-sew anything as I would much prefer to use a machine to do all the work! Anyway, I went down to the Custard Factory in Birmingham. The Custard Factory used to be the location for Bird’s Custard but has since been redeveloped and are now occupied by creative and digital businesses, independent shops, cafés and bars.
In the workshop, we were taught two different crafts which were to make your own bespoke fabric notebook cover and a 3D bird. All the six different lovely fabrics were provided by Hillarys Blinds which are their latest design.
Making a fabric book cover is very simple and straightforward and great for beginners. This craft requires minimal sewing and time. It take approximately 10 – 15 minutes.
