This is a fun, creative and laid back evening class that offers you the opportunity to add another string to your bow. This Village Haberdashery class will show you how to sew a tote bag, providing you with all the best tips and tricks so that the process is easily repeatable at home!
Sewing is clearly a popular pastime for many, many people, but just how much are some folk willing to fork out on their sewing machine. One of the priciest machines on the market is the Brother Quattro 2 6700d, which is will set you back around $10,000. Now that’s a serious passion!
In this class you will be taught how to sew a simple tote bag that may be used as a shopping bag or a beach bag. Your teacher Judith Dahmen will offer all the best tips, tricks and general advice as you master this art and walk away with your own handcrafted tote bag!
You will learn how to sew a bag with a lining or French seams, how to box corners, and how to make and attach bag straps. This class is ideal for first time sewers, or those who already have some experience and are looking to learn a fun new skill.
You will need to bring the fabric, webbing and thread for your tote. You will be provided with the sewing machine and tools. You will need:
*1/2m cotton canvas, cotton/linen blend canvas or quilting cotton for the outside of the bag *1/2m quilting cotton for the inside of the bag *Approx 1.5 - 2m of webbing for the bag straps (depends on what length you prefer) *Coordinating thread
