Carpet bag workshop

carpet bag making workshop

These cute and clever bags make use of an internal tubular frame. When it comes to security and convenience these frames are excellent as they are spring-loaded so they only open (and shut) when you want them to. We will show you how to easily use these clever bag frames to make a unique and fabulously arty looking carpet bag that is guaranteed to get envious glances from the girls. The bags are neat when shut, but pop them open and you won’t believe how much you can fit inside. Mary Poppins eat your heart out!
