Box Bags, Baskets and Pods
July 19, 2022 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm
A Double Workshop with Tase and Amanda
Join us for a day of sewing and make some useful and lovely things to take home with you in these two workshops. Each workshop is approximately 2 hours long and will run side by side, so you can enjoy one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
You’ll need your machine and a basic sewing kit; choose to bring your own fabrics or kits can be provided at a nominal cost. Remember to bring your lunch!
Box Bag making with Amanda
Origami Baskets and Storage Pods with Tase
These ‘pert’ little box bags make fabulous gifts and can be made from left over pieces of upholstery fabric. Amanda will guide you through the making of a bag and show other variations on the basic idea. You can buy a pack of the fabrics and zip or bring your own materials. Cost of a pack of materials for this workshop, if you want them, will be £3 plus the cost of the 8” zip.
Make these origami boxes and storage pods in no time at all! Useful in the sewing room as catchers (instead of putting things on the side and then wondering where you’ve put them…!) or around the house for those bits and bobs that are always lying around, they make nice gifts too! A quick make, in the two-hour session you should make at least one origami box and one pod.
Both the boxes and pods can be made from fat quarters, and you’ll need some batting scraps as well. Tase will bring fabrics and batting if you need them, price depending on size and style
