Fabric Coiled Pots Workshop

Yesterday we made some fabric coiled pots out of fabric scraps – a great way to lighten the load in scrap baskets but also a great way to recycle clothes that are no longer needed.

After a demonstration from Karen Teal, tutor for the day, there was a flurry of activity to rip up fabric ready for the project in hand. Then it was heads down to get started

And by the end of the day there were some very colourful pots to admire

It is important to point out here that the hand sewers weren’t slacking…. their pots were work in progress because it takes a lot longer to hand sew than sew them on the machine!

And, as usual, the group found an alternative use for the pots – as hats Tommy Cooper style!
