You can never have enough bags....... so why not learn how to make your very own handmade tote bag. Its practical, stylish and a eco - conscious alternative to using plastic carrier bags when you're out and about shopping.
Our 'Bags of Fun' workshop is a great introduction to bag making. Mix and match patterns from our stash of thrifted, vintage and new fabrics to create your very own bag. During the class you'll get to grips with sewing straps, creating flat bottoms, learn about lining and making a button hole.
By the end of the class you’ll take home a stylish and practical handmade tote bag.
You will learn how to do all these things...
· How to make a simple tote bag
· How to create straps
· How to sew a flat bottom into your bag
· How to sew a button hole and hand sew a button
· How to include a lining for inside your bag
· How to topstitch
· Pinning + cutting & ironing techniques
Material included. Fabric, sewing machine thread, vintage buttons.
Basic tools of the trade are also provided* so all you have to do is show up!
*If you have your own sewing machine bring it with you but don’t forget the instruction manual & some spare machine needles.
Classes are small, maximum class number is 8 guests, to ensure you get the personal tuition you need to help with your project and get the best out of each workshop we host. There is also the chance to chat with the other guests and meet like minded new friends!

PLEASE NOTE: This is an intermediate sewing workshop. If you already know your way around the sewing machine, feel comfortable using it, threading, loading the bobbin, back stitching and your able to sew a straight seam, then this class is for you.

If you have never used a sewing machine before or you've not used one in years and years we recommend you book a place on our Oh Sew Basic beginner's sewing machine workshop in preparation for making a bag.
