Inspiring day course with Gillian Harris

I am still buzzing after spending last Thursday doing a hat making course with Gillian Harris in the studio above her shop in Dorking. (http://www.gilliangladrag.co.uk/)  There were just 7 of us and we all left having made a gorgeous felt hat.  I have since used the techniques she showed us to make a peg bag.  See below, the first one shows the inside of the bag with sparkly spots, the other 2 show the outside with fern design and bumble bee.  I'm really pleased with it!

I haven't actually taken any pictures of the hat yet, it is still in the airing cupboard drying out!  When I do I'll add those so you can see what you think.

I'm also booked on her christmas decoration and jewellery making course in December so watch this space!


  1. Fantastic! Haven't you been busy? Looking forward to seeeing all you crafts.
