About the Course
Create a beautiful pouch or clutch bag for yourself or to give as a Christmas or Birthday gift. These bags are ideal for many uses such as carrying smaller items for example make up or toiletries or to add some handmade glamour to a party outfit.
During the workshop you’ll explore how to select and piece together materials to create a variety of effects including applique, basic patchwork and crazy patchwork. Details will then be added using a range of free machine embroidery techniques before learning how to create the pouch itself. Embellishments including beads and sequins can be added to compliment your design.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, including complete beginners. This workshop runs from 10.30-1.30.

What's included in the price?
All materials and refreshments are included; if you have some fabrics or threads you would like to include please feel free to bring them along. You will need to bring your own sewing machine with bobbins, although I do have one spare for workshop use by prior arrangement. Most machines are suitable for free machine embroidery, you will need to be able to drop the feed dogs or cover them with a plate. A darning or embroidery foot is very useful. If you are unsure what your machine needs for free machine embroidery please ask prior to the workshop.
