Knitting t-shirts into coasters using just a pair of pencils with Alison Beadnell
|The T-shirt coasters project was designed by Alison who was modelling a sweater she made from her son's old t-shirts|
|Step 1: Cutting t-shirts into a long narrow strip to create yarn|
Stage 2: Knitting the strip into a coaster using pencils

|One of the collages created on the evening - a combination of music paper and maps|
|Tree brought along her mini sewing machines for this fabric recycling workshop|
|We were donated a sack of fabric offcuts and with help from Tree they were turned into patchwork tote bags|
|Neha's first attempt on a sewing machine and she made a purse with a zip|
|Nifty re-creation, this sweater was turned into a hat and wrist gloves|
Getting down to the knitty gritty in our knitting corner
|As usual we had special guest tutors on hand to guide newbies how to knit - this always results in happy faces|
In keeping with the theme The Make Escape's Momtaz and guest tutor Tree both wore homemade green dresses, Momtaz's used to be a curtain!
