During construction you'll get to use machine stitches, finish with the overlocker, put on the cuffs and a waistbands. Made with stretch/knit fabric, our baby leggings class is a great class where you'll whip up a pair of baby leggings. 

Leggings are versatile, layerable, and above all, comfortable. A baby's secret weapon in Melbourne's famous four seasons in one day weather!

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: Look for mid weight two way stretch fabric, merino wool knits, bamboo blends, baby rib knit... It is essential you choose a two-way stretch and your leggings will retain their shape if there is a small % of lycra/nylon in the fabric.

Vendor since 2013

Have you played with the idea of learning to sew? Do you day dream about making your own clothes? 

At Thread Den it's just like a friend (a super nice clever one) teaching you and a few friends to sew. There is no need to clear off a space and find somewhere to work at home. When you come in; take advantage of having all the equipment on hand, lovely big cutting tables, smooth running Janomes with plenty of feet accessories, inspiring resources, and friendly people to chat to. Everything is right here. Students simply need to bring along their fabric, matching thread and notions like buttons, zips, etc.  Your teachers have years of experience, their own labels and businesses, and the desire to share their skills and craftsmanship with you.

Thread Den is located at Level 1, 329 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Start at the very beginning, take your skills to the next level, or find your own unique style.

09 December 2017 • Sewing Baby Knit Leggings ✄

From pattern (which you take home ) to careful direction and oversight of every step of sewing, this class was excellent. Dani was a terrific teacher: gentle , clear and offering lots of helpful hints. I have done several Thread Den courses and love what I make and learn.
