The weather’s finally turned into winter in the UK, so it’s time to think about warm sewing. Winter dressmaking projects can often be long and complicated, so here’s the antidote – the Parkwood Cowl.
Takes just 1m of fabric and can be made all in one fabric, reversible or with contrast panels.
There’s just one pattern piece with all the variations marked on and it sews up super quick with only 4 pieces, making it great for beginners and an ideal project for your homemade Christmas gift sewing (every year lots of MIY Workshop students do exactly that!).
The Parkwood Cowl is available as a printed paper pattern for £15….
….a pdf instant download pattern for £9…..
….and is also the first MIY Collection Kit!
The kit contains a printed Parkwood pattern, specially selected beautiful quality bouclé wool mix fabric in a choice of burgundy, grey or teal and matching colour thread. Even better it will be delivered to your door beautifully packaged in a sturdy gift box, all for just £55. Perfect if you want to get sewing straight away without worrying about fabric shopping, or the ideal gift for a beginner stitcher.
