This evening, I had a great time filming the first two how-to videos for the brilliant quilt cushion making kit that Chris Hammacott has made for carers to try. The kits come in a handy craft bag, which can be used for crafting projects and keeping everything together for this and future projects. Future versions of this pattern can develop into all kinds of projects such as a baby quilt or a tote bag.
The videos are just a couple of minutes long and will be:
1: Unpacking your kit
2: Piecing together and sewing the first seams
3: Finishing the front panel
4: Making up the cushion
There will also be a downloadable instruction sheet to print or view online in case you have your own recycled fabrics to have a go with.
The first two videos are finished and the second two will be filmed near the end of the month, which will leave us ready to upload everything together by the end of the month. The kits will contain a video when they are ready.
Three kits will be available for free to carers across the islands who fancy trying out or reconnecting with some patchwork – if you would like one, please let me know. It would be great to know how you get on with it.
