Join Emma Redfern of Hole House for a full day of sewing to create a beautiful Slouch Bag.
So called because of its curvy shape and cross body strap, the slouch bag is a slimline and practical bag that can be made in a variety of fabrics and colour blocked for a modern look. Its great in tweed, but also works well in upholstery weight fabric.
Students will learn how to pattern match fabric, use interlining for structure, sew an adjustable bag strap and how to box corners to give their bags depth and shape. A pattern and full instructions will be provided, along with all specialist materials, but students will need to bring their own sewing machine, fabric, scissors and pins etc. This class is suitable for those who can confidently use their sewing machine, but does not require any advanced sewing skills as each step will be fully explained in an informal and relaxed way.
Students are required to bring:
– A sewing machine in good working order
– Three quarters of a meter of outer fabric (tweed, canvas, something a bit heavier than quilt weight) This can be made in various sizes though, so if you only have half a meter, you will be able to make the smaller size.
– Three quarters of a meter of a lining fabric (quilt weight, lawn etc) again, if you make the smaller size you will need only half a meter.
– Matching thread
Please note there is a £15 material charge payable to the tutor on the day.
