Project Pouches – online via ZOOM

project pouches bright

If you like being organised as much as us you are going to love these. You’ll be addicted to making them before you know it.

These pouches are great for all skill levels and can be made from any fabrics. Feeling adventurous? They also look really great pieced and quilted from all your scraps. This makes them a great project for all skill levels.

Our online classes are fun and friendly (you can check our our reviews on Tripadvisor, Google or Facebook) and because we teach lots of face to face classes too we know where you might go wrong before you do.

What will we cover?

During the workshop we’ll be making a larger size pouch. We will  show you how to reinforce your fabric choices with interfacing, making your pouch fit for purpose. Want to insert a zip that you’ll be super proud of? You will learn the best zip techniques with us and we will show you our tricks too. We’ll also share our best tips for sewing with vinyl. You can add an optional handle too depending on how you are going to use it.


Once you’ve made one you really will want to make more. So next, we will take you through the steps so you know how to easily upsize or downscale so you can make the perfect size for all your projects. We’ll also share a few hacks for different ways of using them.

How will I be taught?

Our online classes are fun and friendly (you can check our our reviews on Tripadvisor, Google or Facebook) and because we teach lots of face to face classes too we know where you might go wrong before you do.


The session will be leg by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.

You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.


Don’t worry if you’ve never done an online class before – we have. The online sewing class will be hosted on Zoom to allow us chance to show you clearly all the steps you need and have multiple cameras working. Hosted from a well lit space with good cameras you will see all the detail you need, and of course get chance to ask all the questions you can think of.


This is an online class live class on ZOOM that will be recorded so you will be able to rewatch and catch up at a later date should you so wish. The recording will be available within 2 days of the event.

Do I need any previous experience or skills?

You will need to be able to confidently use your sewing machine but all techniques will be clearly shown and demonstrated and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. During the class you’ll learn the basics of  simple quilting techniques.
