Large Padded Bag

 

This workshop is with Liz and is to make a padded bag with large front and side pockets.  Once made you will see the potential for making variations of this bag.

For this bag you will use applique and free embroidery techniques - or you can just make a plain bag.  The pattern is quite versatile and it is very suitable for beginners.

This workshop is from 10am to 4pm.  It costs £40. You will need to provide all fabrics and threads.  

Refreshments are provided.

PRINT AND STITCH POUCH

 

This workshop is with Liz and is to make a perfect little pouch.  Once made you will see the potential for making bigger or smaller ones.

 

You will need to provide the base fabric. Liz suggests a calico or plain fabric as ideal to stamp your chosen pattern on.  If you have not printed with stamps before, this will be an ideal project for you to see if you would like to take the technique further.  Liz will bring some stamps and fabric paints which can be used at a cost of £5, payable directly to Liz, or you can bring your own.  

This workshop is from 10am to 4pm.  It costs £40 each. Refreshments are provided.
