Based on an original Murgatroyd & Bean design, you will learn how to make a small, handstitched character which will be no more than 12cm tall.
Your 3D character will be built upon a Sylko-style cotton reel using felt, fabric scraps and haberdashery; it’s personality will be brought to life with hand embroidery. Great fun to make and when complete, the head of your embroidered character will be ready and willing to be used as a pincushion. Ideally suited to those with some previous hand stitch experience.
