Sweet wrapper pouch

Sweet wrapper pouch workshop

How much fun is this? We will be working with real sweet wrappers to make zipped pouches.

You will learn how to prepare the sweet wrapper for sewing, how to sew a pouch and how to insert a zip.

Why not personalise your pouch by using a wrapper from your favourite chocolate bars, crisps or sweets. The wrapper you bring will determine the size of your pouch, a small wrapper will make a pencil case or a larger one (for example a large crisp multipack) will make a pouch suitable for an I-pad or small laptop).

This workshop is suitable for beginners
