Cath Kidston Lampshade Making.

Tuesday 11 September 2012

As I mentioned before last Tuesday I went up to London for a Cath Kidston blogger event. It was hosted in the beautiful Marylebone store, & I felt extremely honoured to have been invited.

It was run by Lisa of Sew Over It: we got to pick a fabric we liked from the Cath Kidston range & then she talked us through how to make our lampshade. She made it look very easy. Easier than it was. Although now I'm totally hooked & I'm going to make a million lampshades at home!

Here we are concentrating very hard (that's me looking silly at the back)...

I chose this lovely seaside fabric, I love it so much.

When we left we also got this amazing little goody bag of things. I felt like a kid at a party.
It included some really lovely sewing accessories from Cath Kidston & also Lisa's brand new book that has been released today!

The book is filled with lovely things & ideas of how to customise clothing & tips & sewing projects. Lisa was a great teacher & also the book is full of pretty pictures (which is my main reason for liking a book). I find it so inspiring seeing someone running such a successful & yet still lovely & personal business.

Anyway, I'm sorry to sound so gushy & over the top about this all, I just was very excited to have been invited & I of course love little presents too :) It's the first thing like it I've been to & I wish I lived in London so I could attend more meet ups & those sort of events. I think I need to organise a Devon/South West bloggers one!


  1. awesome! sounds like great fun!

    Ye i never went to a blogger meet up in london and now i'm in scotland!


    1. London is the best place for these things I think, I guess we'll have to start little ones in our ends of the UK :)

  2. yes please do organise a south west thing and i'll be there! We in the sw of the uk never get much coming our way!
