Sweet wrapper pouch
How much fun is this? We will be working with real sweet wrappers to make zipped pouches.
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
What will we cover?
You will learn how to prepare the sweet wrapper for sewing, how to sew a pouch and how to insert zip.
How will I be taught?
You will be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as they work.
They’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that they’re getting the best results they can.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
Suitable for complete beginners.
Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
- A (clean!) sweet wrapper (you may wish to bring one for the front and one for the back depending on the packaging design) When choosing your wrappers avoid those with a clear window
- Fabric for the lining. You will need two pieces the same size as your sweet wrapper
- Wadding. You will need two pieces slightly bigger all round than your sweet wrapper
- A zip (length will depend on the size of your wrapper)
- Co-ordinating thread
What will I take home with me?
A very cool sweet wrapper pouch and an eagerness to get back on a sewing machine.
Drinks and biscuits will be available.
