About the Course
In this 3 hour workshop you will learn how to make a lovely canvas tote bag with contrast handles and pocket.
Workshop is for beginners taking up a new hobby or those returning to sewing. If you have a machine sitting idle at home why not use it, its great fun!
Encourage your friends to not use plastic bags - gift them a handmade canvas tote
In a small group, you will learn how to:
- cut the fabric pieces, from my pattern
- Sew in a straight line
- Neaten edges
- Top stitch
- Turn corners
- trim seams
- make a handle
- make a pocket
- make a square bag bottom
- your machine and instuction book
- size 14 needle and replacements
- empty bobbin
Relax in a quiet rural location and enjoy making this beautiful and very useful tote bag to take home with a pattern. You will want to make lots of these bags. No more plastic bags!
I have over 35 years experience sewing, from learning to sew as a child making dolls clothes, progressing to dressmaking, home furnishings (curtains and blinds), accessories, always to professional standards. I design and make my own patterns, and work as a freelance tutor. I hope you will come along and enjoy my workshops, where I am happy to pass on lots of information and tips.

Attended this course with Judi and thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly liked the small group as this gave us all the individual help when we needed it. I love the finished bag and will definitely be using it and making more as gifts for my friends.
