Bags & Purses

Bags & Purses dates

(sessions are 6 weeks from date below)
  • Monday, 16th July

What to expect...

7pm to 9pm - Rock Lane Sewing Studio - £60

Learn how to make a variety of Bags & Purses across 6 evening classes. We will include lots of different bags and purses in this course and will make a different style each week. All of these bags and purses make fantastic gifts and would be perfect to get ahead with your handmade Christmas gifts.

The styles of purses included are; A vintage style, small & cute framed purse with a metal clasp. A straight framed purse which is slightly larger with a metal clasp. A snap purse, ideal for a coin purse or coin wallet for a man, it has a snap shut opening made from metal. Finally we will spend the last weeks making a zipped, lined clutch bag which has a magnetic fold over fastening. It will also include a personalised leather detail using leather stamps to add a name or phrase to your clutch.

You will need to purchase your fabric and interfacing before the class. The great thing about purses is they use very little fabric so just a fat quarter for each purse will be plenty. Exact details and amounts will be sent upon booking.

You will be given a demonstration of each technique, along with handouts which detail the different stages of sewing. You will keep your pattern too so you can make more at home.

These purses look great in any non-stretchy fabric - Cotton, poly-cotton, tweed, tartan, denim, or linen. If you are unsure you can contact us

Is this for me?... This is a perfect class for all levels, from Beginner to more advanced. Great if you would like to learn specific fastenings like zips and clasps. Would also be a great class for those who want to make accessories with professional touches as gifts or to sell. Also great for anyone who would like to have a go at personalising using leather stamping.
