Construct this super smart tote bag with the fabric of your choice, complete with leather handles and contrasting leather keyring.


Your two days will be full to the brim constructing this fully lined stunning tote bag.  You will be shown step by step how to follow the pattern, complete with internal zip, pocket and feet studs. The bag fully closes so all your treasures will be kept out of sight and is big enough to carry Ipad, purse, phone etc. Participants are asked to provide their own choice of tweed outer fabric (your choice) and lining fabric but all the the hardware and leather straps will be supplied.  I will be in contact with you one month before the date to ask you to confirm what colour leather straps you would prefer so they can be ordered in.  You will also be shown how to create your own contrasting tassel complete with hardware as pictured on the second day.

Dimensions are 13” x 10” x 5”

Picture: Tweed type fabric and Liberty print for the lining.
