Appropriate fabrics are 100% natural fibres, no synthetics or polyesters, no glitter or metallic prints. Breathability and softness is essential. Consider going through your linen cupboard for old natural fibre sheets.
Liners should be 100% natural fibres: cotton, bamboo, linen – blends and styles of these are OK but no polyester, synthetics or fabrics that have plastic or glitter. Any print is fine! Breathability and softness are the priority: think about what you would put next to a baby’s bare skin. Wool cannot be used for a pouch liner.
Update 12 January:
We have some people question if we should still go ahead with our sewing sessions for bushfire impacted animals. Some collection points have asked people to stop sending items due to rescue organisations advising they are currently at capacity with these items.
Given we are still two months away from the end of the fire season, we think it is worthwhile to still make items. We have three Mondays, the last being Australia Day and we can send items after that (or earlier if the situation changes).
Many of these animals will need to be in care for quite sometime and while the first wave of need maybe catered for, I feel that there will be need later on when the fires are not still fresh in our mind.
If you want to still join us, we’d love to have you!
It is here! Our next Crochet Club.
We want to introduce you to the crochet designers that you should be crushing hard on.
In this fortnightly club, you will learn how to make the Katie Jones Flower Poncho with Amy.
This Easter join us at Thread Den to add to your #MeMade wardrobe. Choose our popular skirt workshop: a classic circle skirt to be held over Friday and Saturday afternoon, or a one off workshop featuring the Indie pattern designer – Pauline Alice – making the Reina Blouse on Sunday and Monday.
If you live far away from Melbourne, this is a lovely chance to come to town, stay a night and sew up a storm with us.
To make these special Easter workshops more fun, we have a goodie bags with surprises from our friends inside. Those that have put in goodies include; Maison Burlesque, Homelealass, Cinema Nova, Spruce Craft Co, Ethical Clothing Company, Megan Nielsen Patterns, Closet Case Patterns, Jimmy Buttons.
