Learn to Sew - Reversible Tote Bag


About the Course

LIVE online workshop.
Workshop held on Zoom, for a maximum of 4 people.

A Beginners workshop where you will learn how to make a beautiful and very useful reversible tote bag.

You will be guided through the process of making your bag, as we sew along together. You can interact with the tutor and other participants.

In three hours you will learn how to make handles, sew straight lines and how to make your bag reversible with a square bottom.

Detailed written instructions (with photos) will be emailed to you upon completion of the workshop, so you will have something to refer back to.

Most people who have attended have gone on to make lots more bags for themselves and as gifts, I think you will be addicted!!

Its such fun to make your own bags and you would also be doing your bit for the environment, with handmade bags that will last!

Learn to:
- Sew in a straight line
- Top stitch
- Turn corners
- Trim seams
- Make a handle
- Make a square bag bottom

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.

Suitable for 18yrs and over

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.
