We are very excited to invite you to join Emma Redfern of Hole House for a TWO FULL DAYS of sewing to create a Wendy Bag.

The Wendy Crossbody bag is a cute, zipped bag in 2 sizes, utilising webbing for the detachable strap. It has a zipped pocket on the outside and optional pockets inside. The same pattern can be used to make a bag orientated either vertically or horizontally, so there are plenty of options for variations. Use the smaller size as a handy dog walking bag, or the larger as a practical handbag.  If you find binding internal seams on a zip topped bag fiddly and unsatisfactory, this pattern has an alternative method which you may find easier! 

Suitable for adventurous beginners/intermediate sewists:

Although not a complex bag, this style does require some fiddly stitching around corners. You should be able to confidently thread and use your sewing machine, change and use a zipper foot. 

You are required to bring along with you:

  • 1 fat quarter of outer fabric (bring more if you would like to pattern match)
  • 0.5m of lining fabric
  • 1.5m of coordinating webbing 38mm/40mm wide
  • Matching Thread
  • Fully operational sewing machine.

Please note there is a £14 material charge payable to the tutor on the day. This covers zips, interfacing, interlining, strap hardware, pattern and written instructions. You will also have access to the online Stitch a long Facebook group. 

Included in the cost of your workshop is lunch, tea and coffee throughout the day and afternoon cake.

    Artist

    I design and sew a range of bags and purses in an array of beautiful fabrics and I only use the best I can find. There is no enjoyment for me in mass producing, cutting corners or scrimping on the details … so I don’t.

    I take time to get the fabrics right for each piece, combining tweed with Liberty or vintage barkcloth with a modern cotton, and the attention is always on the detail, those little bits that maybe only you and I would notice. I am a fanatical pattern matcher and pocket obsessive.
