The Make Lounge

Metal Snap Frame Purses @ The Make Lounge

Back in September, Lucy arranged a super fantastic hen party for Colette which included a jewellery making workshop at The Make Lounge in Islington. It is a seriously amazing place with workshops for pretty much everything crafty: cupcake decorating, cushion covering, amigurumi, embroidery, overlocking, you can even sew yourself a pair of knickers!

We couldnt resist the Metal snap frame purse workshop, so booked ourselves in just before Christmas. And these are the results!

The Make Lounge has the perfect atmosphere for crafting. Very relaxed and friendly, the workshop and store are just beautiful, and the teachers are all very clever and helpful.

The purses were a lot easier to make than they look, thanks to the imparting of wisdom from the experts, and we got to take the pattern home, so we bought ourselves some supplies (yes indeed - some more lovely Michael Miller fabric!), and rushed home to make more. Ta daa: perfect Christmas presents for little sisters!

mmmm, cupcake decorating next methinks!

Oh-so gorgeous, and very inspiring. Am especially enamoured of the Eiffel Tower fabric. Too tempting...

Happy to have discovered your pretty blog, too.

The fabric is great isn't it?! I've got heaps left over and desperately trying to find the time to make a cushion cover with it!

And your blog looks super too - I'm off to explore... :o)

All I can say: I love.
Could you tell me where can I book a lesson???

well.illbedarned said...

Ooooh yes! You can book classes online at I think you have to register as part of the booking process but after that you're good to go! Now for the hard part : choosing which class to take!
Hope you have a great time, whatever you choose!
