Last Saturday we held our weekend bag workshop- I was both looking forward to and dreading this one. I knew the bag was a great pattern and size but also felt that its a lot to ask people to make it completely and to a high standard in one day, especially as they’ve come to enjoy themselves. As you can see from the pics, we had some truly wonderful results. I sell one or two of my bags in a friends hat studio On Your Head Be It here in Northampton and one or two of these are serious contenders.
I just love the way that this old vintage tablecloth has been utilised. The prints in the corners have been incorporated into the bag. The reverse is an old tea towel with a liner on it. The entire piece has a sea-side theme. Simply wonderful.
Here’s one part way through, what absolutely gorgeous William Morris fabric. Good old Mr Morris was very much in evidence, his fabrics make the most perfect bags for dirty weekends away (not sure wether he’d approve though!)
We had such a lovely day I have decided to run this workshop again on April 9th from 10-4 at a cost of £35. If any one’s interested please get in touch.
