Sewing Workshop August | Tote Bag
For our Sewing Workshop August we are going to create a Tote Bag. This bag uses a variety of skills which makes this course suitable for any sewing level. You will need basic knowledge of your machine to attend this workshop.
This tote bag or large handbag is a gorgeous statement bag that your friends won’t believe you have made. It is a perfect size to carry your daily essentials. A roomy eye-catching tote bag to pop over your shoulder when going out and ideal to carry your iPad, laptop, papers, books, lunch to work in style or your sewing to class. Depending on your skill set you will learn how to make a zipped and slip pocket, fit a magnetic clasp and add metal feet. This tote bag can be made in vinyl, denim, furnishing fabric or cotton. To give structure you can use foam or wadding.
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.
They are my own pattern and I am happy for you to sell any products that you make with them.
