Xmas Jumper dates

  • LEEDS ONLY
  • Monday, 6th November

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - 40 Rock Lane - £60 - 6 weeks

We will spend the 6 weeks making a sweatshirt jumper and adding an applique design to the front. This can be a Christmas design or just a personalised design of your choice. You may fancy a super classy style with some writing or a stag or go fun and festive with a big santa or Christmas pudding!

For this loose fitting adult sweatshirt jumper we will be using Kwik Sew Pattern 3045 (click here to buy) which you will need to bring along to the session.

If you would like to make the sweatshirt for a man in your life then the pattern is unisex so you'll just need to know the size before you come. If you would like to make a childs jumper then you will need Burda Pattern 9407 (click here to buy) suitable for ages 4-10 or for other ages please contact us before booking.

You will start the first session learning to choose the best size for you and how to cut the pattern out. You will need to cut out your fabric between week 1 and 2 for which full instructions will be given. In week 2 we will applique a design onto the front, and spend the following 4 weeks making the sweatshirt

This session is perfect if you have attended our Beginners Sewing Session, or you have sewn before and would like to learn to use stretch fabric and applique, or if you just fancy adding a super stylish sweatshirt to your winter wardrobe.

You will also need to bring along fabric for this session. A sweatshirting fabric is the best choice but it can also be made in fleece. Exact amounts will depend on size (details will be sent upon booking) but it will be roughly 2 metres.

For ideas on designs and applique a great place to look is in shops and on Pinterest. We've created a pinterest board to show you our favourites HERE!

You leave the session at the end of the 6 weeks with a Christmas Jumper... handmade by you!
