We were lucky enough to be invited along to demonstrate a Mother's Day themed craft at last night's monthly Lo Fi DIY event run by Manchester Craft Mafia, which was a pleasure to run and resulted in some fab crafty gifts, which I suspect might not make it to the Lo Fi - ers respective Mums!
Reverse applique (or Mola applique) was our subject and after playing around with few ideas I opted for two retro styled designs - a tulip and apple.
Each customer chose a template, some even freestyled (go girls!) and then set to work on neatly handsewing their chosen fabrics and felts onto a plain calico bag. After much concerntration, some lovely food and the odd drink, some of the results can be seen below. Everyone went home one creative technique heavier!
