Bag Making Course - 5 weeks starts Fri 26th April 10.30am-12.30pm
On this course we'll be making two really useful bags - a beach bag and a rucksack.
Our beach bag pattern has been tried and tested over many years and is so versatile you'll want to make one for all sorts of reasons not just the beach (e.g. I use one to carry my sewing stuff in when coming to the shop).
The rucksack pattern we will be using is a choice of two - either the Atlas Rucksack by Swoon or the Range Backpack by Noodlehead. They make up beautifully with great attention to details that are super practical and will be a sturdy addition to your bag collection (don't tell me you don't have a collection...!).
We cover an enormous variety of techniques including different types of zip insertion, pockets, sewing with many layers and avoiding common pitfalls that can crop up.
This course is suitable for confident beginners. You need to be able to use your sewing machine but don't need to be an experienced sewist.
Dates: Friday 26th April 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th May
Times: 10.30am - 12.30pm.
