Sewing Workshop November | Bowler Style Shoulder Bag
All my workshops are local or within a few miles of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. They are fun and friendly so do come along.
For the Sewing Workshop November we are going to create a Bowler Style Shoulder bag. This handbag uses a variety of skills which makes this course suitable for confident sewing person. A beginner will struggle but I can adapt the pattern if need be. You will need basic knowledge of your machine to attend this workshop.
This shoulder bag is a gorgeous statement bag that your friends won’t believe you have made. It is a perfect size to carry your daily essentials. An eye-catching shoulder bag to pop over your shoulder when going out. You will learn how to make a zipped gusset , zipped and slip pockets and make an adjustable shoulder strap. This shoulder bag can be made in vinyl, denim, furnishing fabric or cotton. To give structure you can use foam or wadding. I would advise a good machine and sewing abilities if using vinyl. The feature panel is made with cotton and maybe denim or furnishing fabric for the rest of the bag.
Sewing Workshop November 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. 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 is my own pattern and I am happy for you to sell any products that you make with it.
