Price includes a copy of the Booklet Pouch pattern by Aneela Hoey
If you love sewing you’ll know that you can never have too may organisers for your projects and for all those extra ‘bits and bobs’. I use mine to store some of my leftovers scraps that I dont want to throw away.. it means that I can easily see them and keep them flat too. This is also the perfect organiser for school and art supplies or make up and toiletries when you go away. The list goes on! Available in a choice of two sizes; 6″ x 8″ x 3″ (small) or 9″ x 11″ x 3″ (large) during the workshop we’ll focus on making the larger size but you can make a smaller one if you wish.
The cost of the workshop includes the specialist heavyweight interfacing and you will also go home with fully illustrated instructions ready for your next make.
What will we cover?
There is so much to learn in this workshop. At the start we will cover the preparation of the pouch including our top tips for applying the extra stable interfacing. During the construction of this project we will share all our techniques for working with vinyl, how to get the best finish on your zip insertions (there is plenty of practice for these) and also how to get a nice final finish with binding.
How will I be taught?
You will be taught in our light and airy studio by an experienced, friendly tutor.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
It is a great project for anyone from a confident beginner upwards
