Intermediate: Cowrie Bikini - July 20 + 21

Intermediate: Cowrie Bikini - July 20 + 21



It's 'kini season baby!

In this two-day workshop, we'll be making the Paradise Patterns Cowrie Kini. The Cowrie Kini is a bikini pattern with two style options for the top and a French cut bottom with medium coverage and two waist rise options.

View A, the flat front top, is finished with fold over elastic (FOE) and has a G-hook closure in the back. You can choose either mid- or high rise bottoms for both views.

View B, the tie front top, is self faced and this construction is commonly called “seamless”, meaning you don’t see the seams and the lining and main fabric is the same.


All fabric, supplies, and equipment are provided. Participants will have their own machine to use for the day, but can bring their own if they want to become more familiar with it. Please make sure you have a stretch needle and a bobbin that fit your machine!


  • Adults (16+)
  • Skill Level: Intermediate. We'd recommend having some sewing experience under your belt for this project. If you've been nervous to tackle stretch fabrics on your own, this would be a great chance to learn and ask questions.




  • Taking proper measurements & interpreting a size chart
  • Using a pattern & cutting techniques 
  • Sewing machine basics
  • Working with stretch fabrics
  • Using foldover elastic OR making garments double-sided
  • And more!


BOTH of the following dates:

Saturday, July 20th 10am - 5pm
Sunday, July 21st 10am - 5pm
(we might finish earlier than this on day 2, but please plan to be available all day just in case!)

    Cancellation Policy

    This policy is effective for purchases made on or after April 8th, 2024. 

    A note for the leather coin purse workshop:  If you choose to add embossing, please note that the cost of the kit ($90) is final sale, but you can pick it up from the shop to make at home if you cancel your workshop spot.

    Our workshops are held in small groups and usually sell out far in advance. It can be very difficult to fill a cancelled spot on short notice. In order to ensure we can continue offering small group sewing workshops, the following cancellation policy applies to all workshop purchases. 

    We understand people get sick, child care cancels, and other emergencies come up. We ask that you please read this policy before booking a workshop, and understand that we must adhere to it. Please be understanding of our limitations as a small, independently run business, and don't ask us to make an exception to our policy.

    If you can provide over 48 hours notice:

    If you need to cancel your spot and are able to give over 48 hours' notice, you will receive a digital store credit that can be used for a future workshop, to shop online, or to shop in person. Store credits never expire, and must be issued to the email used to book the workshop.

    To cancel, contact us.

    If you cancel within 48 hours of the start time:

    It is very difficult for us to fill workshop spots on short notice. If you cancel within 48 hours or do not show for the workshop, you are not eligible for a store credit, and you are not able to pick up workshop materials.

    If you are able to find someone to take your place in the workshop, contact us and we can try to arrange that they take your place. This is not guaranteed, especially if they require any custom pattern adjustments.

    To cancel, contact us.

    Arriving Late

    If you arrive one hour (60 minutes) or more after the scheduled workshop time, that will be considered a no-show, and you will not be able to join the workshop, receive a store credit, or a refund.

    Multi-Day Workshops

    Partial refunds are not available if you can't finish your workshop. If you can't attend the remaining workshop dates, contact us and we can arrange for you to finish the project during a co-working session or take it home.

    When you sign up for a workshop, there is a checkbox to acknowledge that you understand and agree to this policy that you are required to select in order to sign up for the workshop. By checking this box and signing up for the workshop, you are agreeing to this policy.
