Thorpe and Co Magic


On Saturday 3rd February I had the great pleasure of running a Sewmiriam Tote Bag making workshop at Thorpe and Co in Boolaroo. Maarten, Chris and Janette made me feel so welcome.


It was such a fun day with a wonderfully talented group of ladies. Some faces I recognised from a previous workshop. These ladies had come back for more! No pressure - LOL.  When I arrived there was a lovely display set amongst divine fabrics. Janette had made a sample Sewmiriam Tote using a vintage tapestry - gorgeous!


Let's see what these clever ladies produced in the class. First up is Olga's delightful Anna Maria Horner bag front. I love that large  raspberry spot !


Janelle used this beautiful poppy print as her focus fabric  and framed it with a superb vibrant gingham.

Rachelle had an enviable collection of Cotton and Steel fabrics and made this panel, which is destined to make a stunning bag.


Candy used bold quilting to make this cat panel go from fantastic to FABULOUS.


Deb did a great job by fussy cutting an Anna Maria Horner fabric to perfection and enhancing it with quilting.

Who wouldn't want this bag for their travelling adventures! Panel perfectly done by Trish during class.


Narelle had a safari theme going on. Look at that ric rack fabric!


Chris coordinated these fabrics, and fussy cut the focus fabric to showcase the birds, trees and the house. I love this combination.


Di put together a striking combination of fabrics. I love the way she has used her focus fabric to create a lace looking side frame.


We even had time to make a professional zippered pocket in our linings on the day.


Cathie loves reproductions and framed them beautifully in class with vibrant colours. Clever!


Who doesn't like an aqua and raspberry combination with a Jennifer Paganelli focus! Tiff put this stunner together .


Debbie framed this beautiful butterfly panel with a vibrant tomato coloured print. 


And last but not least look at  Kay's Sewmiriam Handy Ziptop bag that she was working on in class. It features a Tula Pink tiger print.  This will make a very special bag indeed.



As you have seen, magic was happening in the Thorpe and Co sewing space! Thank you ladies.

Happy sewing, love Miriamx
