Sewing Workshop May | Logcabin Messenger Bag
For the Sewing Workshop | May we are going to create a beautiful Logcabin Messenger style shoulder bag. The bag features are all adjustable to meet different levels of sewing which makes this course suitable for any sewing level. You will need basic knowledge of your machine to attend this workshop.
During this workshop, you will learn to insert two pockets, one being a zipped pocket. Zips are a scary thought for some people but I have some tricks up my sleeve which I will share and hopefully make it easier for you. The bag has a shoulder strap which could be adjustable or non-adjustable. You will add a magnetic clasp onto the flap. This and the back of the bag has been made using log cabin quilt block before the class or you could just use a feature fabric. Dimensions for the block will be sent in time for it to be made before the class. You could, of course, make up any quilt block of your choice.
Sewing Workshop May | Logcabin Messenger 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 directly from me like metal hardware or foams. Things like irons/ironing board /cutting boards / 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.
This bag is my own pattern and I am happy for you to sell any bags that you make with it.
