Come and spend two days creating your very own bespoke “Mary Poppins” bag. This timeless bag is known not only for it’s vintage style but for it’s roomy size too!
There are various options available, allowing you to create a striking “two tone” bag or if you prefer you can keep it to just one colour. Fabric choice is all yours too, you can go with my favourite, Harris Tweed, or I would recommend a faux leather (for the bottom panel only), a dry oilskin or upholstery weight fabric. You will need to bring a meter of outer fabric of your chosen exterior fabric and 1m of lining fabric – this will give you plenty for any internal pockets you wish to add. Full details of requirements will be emailed together with links to suggested suppliers for tweed, oilskin and faux leather.
Please make sure your machine can cope with the fabric you choose. Please feel free to email if you have any questions about fabric choice.
On the day I will supply everything else you need to construct the bag including interfacing, foam, rigid bag bottom, feet, leather handles, internal wire frame and all other hardware.
Fabric requirements will vary depending on the style you are planning. There are 3 options for the exterior of the bag. It can either be done as one solid colour, a two tone with a straight line or a two tone with a curve. I’ve detailed below the requirements for all three.
Please note, this is a “measure and cut” pattern – paper pattern pieces are not provided. We have allowed for a 2nd morning – please allow for some flexibiity on your finishing time.
Please note there is £15.00 charge to contribute to the bag materials, payable on the day.
