Scrappy Cushion - a creative textile upcycling workshop

Friday 31 May
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Scrappy cushion is an easy and fun class for anyone who can use a sewing machine. If you’ve collected a large stash of fabric offcuts, ribbons and trims, then this is perfect for using them creatively. Firstly I’ll show you how to make new fabric from old. This is a fantastic way to upcycle and repurpose old clothing, and household textiles too. It’s a true ‘zero waste’ project. Your new fabric is decorated with whatever utility or embroidery stitches you have available, and further ribbon or trims can be added on top.

Any fabrics can be used: craft cotton in small print pattern works well, but more luxurious fabrics like satin, velvet or brocade are lovely for adding richness. Lace and chenille add texture.

These techniques can be used to make a ‘memory’ cushion so you can bring along old childrens clothing, Grandma’s vintage linens etc.

The lovely thing about this workshop is that every scrappy cushion is unique and personal.

When you’ve learned how to make upcycled fabrics, you can use them for lots of other things too. Embroidered panels look great in bags, clothing and to make cards and gift boxes.

Who is this aimed at?
Anyone who has basic sewing machine experience. No special art or embroidery experience is required, nor do you need a ‘fancy’ sewing machine. Ordinary utility stitches can be produce attractive results.

What will I learn?
how to find inspiration for your colour palette
various backgrounds for your new fabric
different techniques for layering and bonding fabrics to prepare for stitching
how to use utility stitches of a sewing machine for decorative effects
how to measure up and cut fabric panels for the cushion
making up a cushion, including inserting a zip.

Artisan Stitch has won a certificate of excellence for best sewing classes in Edinburgh.
