The next meeting of the Small Japanese Projects group is on 23 August, from 10am-noon, in the CQ room at Cook Community Hub.
The Small Japanese Projects interest group is for members interested in all things Japanese. Each month (or over two months) you will work on a small project, lead by a member of the group.
The meeting begins with a show and tell of what you have made, purchased or done during the previous two months. It is always great to hear about your activities.
This month’s project is a small fabric tissue pack holder, led by Wendy. These are good to keep in your handbag and they also make great gifts and fete items.
Wendy will demonstrate how to make it but you can hand sew on the day if you wish.
You will need:
- A piece of fabric for the outer layer 14 cm x 22 cm
- Same size lining fabric if using lightweight outer fabric
- Matching or contrasting bias binding 30 cm
- Hand sewing gear
- Small packet of tissues
Outer fabric suggestions:
- Quilting fabric
- Stitched sashiko fabric
- Stitched hitomizashi fabric
- Evening wear remnant
- Japanese brocade or obi fabric
