The Pink Bus is a wonderful quirky addition to a Crafty Hen Party. I can fit 6 participants on the pink bus at any one time (6 only at a time if using sewing machines) so it will be in sessions of 6 at a time. There is a pink Marquee that attaches to the bus so I can offer bigger groups.
I am happy to amend ideas to suit your party, and have given an overview below these can be adapted to use sewing machines or not.
Most Hen Parties are based on a 1 – 3 hrs session, all materials are included so I just need a space to pull up at your location and let’s get making!
Some ideas for a fabulous Hen Party or Birthday are below with prices.
Here are some Hen Party ideas to get your creative juices flowing. We would love to work with you in creating your own fabulous Hen Party so do get in touch if you’d like to mix and match or to discuss your own Hen Party ideas. Sessions range from 1.5 hr sessions to 3 hours in length and everyone leaves with a brilliant project they have made.
Fancy Pants – This is a fancy knicker making workshop for a fun and creative hen party.
The workshop will consist of the following:-
1) Introduction -Simplistic instruction and introduction to the techniques with Miss Libby Rose.
2) Fabrics & pattern: Choices of fabrics will be laces and cotton prints. We then look at the different styles of patterns available for making some super fancy pants.
3) Cutting & laying: Fabrics are laid correctly for stretch or pattern and we cut out the shapes ready for sewing up.
4) Making and Sewing: The fabrics are prepared in such a way that not a lot of stitching is required, simply sewing up a few seams will give the basic shape. The more novice sewers can create something fancy from little sewing, while those with more knowledge have the freedom to add and create something a little more technically skilled.
5) Create your look- making bows, ties for the sides, sewing on sequins and ribbons and decorating them!
