Sewing Workshop June | Carpet Bag
All my workshops are local or within a few miles of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. They are fun, friendly and informal so do come along and join in. Not only do we have a good laugh whilst learning a new skill but also I learn new things from yourself thus I am certain you will not be disappointed!
For the Sewing Workshop June we are going to create a beautiful carpet style also known as a Gladstone or Mary Poppins style handbag.
This handbag uses a variety of skills which makes this course suitable for any sewing level. Importantly you will need basic knowledge of your machine to attend this workshop.
It has proven to be a very popular workshop so I am running it again. Furthermore this handbag is a gorgeous statement bag that your friends won’t believe you have made. Unlike other bags it uses an internal frame which comes in a choice of 3 sizes, (these frames are an additional cost to the class and payable on the day). The smallest frame makes an average size handbag. The medium frame makes a large handbag whilst the large frame makes an overnight bag. Please stipulate which size frame and quantity is required when booking the class. Depending on your skill set you will learn some or all of the following features. In particular how to make a zipped and slip pocket, fit a flap with a tongue lock, attaching handles with rivets, making a vinyl base and adding metal feet.
Sewing Workshop June | Carpet Bag details:
As with all my classes please bring your own fabrics and sewing notions because we all have loads in our stash pile!! Any specific bag making supplies you can purchase direct from me like metal hardware or foams. In particular things like irons, ironing board, cutting boards and electrical extension leads I will supply.
Materials will depend on your sewing skills and machine. Use furnishing or cotton fabrics with wadding or foam. I will be able to advise on the wadding/foam once I have seen your machine and fabric choice.
When booking and payment is received, I will send you out full cutting instructions and a detailed needs list a few weeks before the class.
They are my own pattern and I am happy for you to sell any products that you make with them.
