This would make a perfect gift for someone special or a treasured heirloom for family to enjoy in years to come!
Come along to this full day workshop and Leah will teach you step by step how to make your very own fabric angel. You'll learn doll making techniques, tips on stuffing, creating faces and hair using hand stitching techniques. Use fabrics from our stash, we've some lovely vintage linens, silks, embroidery and lace plus colourful fabrics too. Or why not create a heirloom keepsake angel and bring along some special fabric that means something to you, this could be grannies linen, some children clothes or special mementos which can incorporated into your design.
