Handbag Session

Handbag Dates

(10am to 4pm) ROCK LANE
  • Saturday, 9th September

What to expect...

10am to 4pm - 40 Rock Lane - £49


You can never have too many handbags, and imagine adding to your collection with one handmade by you!

You will spend the 6 weeks making your very own saddle bag style handbag. This handbag is a 70's style inspired pattern featuring an exterior slip pocket with dart tucks for extra room. She is easy to carry with an adjustable long crossbody strap. A magnetic snap closure is sewn into the bottom seam to flip up and attach to the exterior of the flap, keeping your belongings secure and the bag easy to open and close.

The pattern for this class is provided

You will need to bring your own fabric... You can use either a vinyl style fabric, leather or a heavy weight woven fabric such as canvas, curtain or upholstery fabric. You could even do a mixture of fabrics for different sections of the bag. Amounts needed will be sent upon booking.

For inspiration and ideas on choosing your fabric, you can see other Saddle Bags Here!

You leave the session at the end of the day with a beautiful handbag... handmade by you!

Is this session for me?... This is a great session for people who have attended a few sessions before or/are ready to move on to using different fabrics and next level techniques. Great if you would like to learn to insert lining, zips and bag hardware. This pattern contains lots of great new techniques to master.

You will be asked to cut your fabric at home before the class.

We also offer this class as a Evening Sewing Session too!
