The Leather Handled Tote ~ Saturday 26th March or Sunday 3rd July 2022

Materials :£20.00

The Tote is a timeless bag that looks smart and elegant, whilst being simple to make. It’s perfect for beginners as it has no fiddly closures or curves, but will introduce you to some basic bag making techniques including how to sew a zipped pocket into the lining. You will receive full written instructions and a pattern to take away with you along with free entry to the closed Facebook Stitch-a-long Group, where you will find further tips and tricks, video tutorials, a bonus pattern for adding a recessed zip top and lots of help and inspiration.

The bag features a roomy interior, reinforced base with optional bag feet, leather handles and optional matching buckle. You will need to bring half a metre of an outer fabric (tweed, upholstery weight, canvas) and half a metre of a lining fabric (quilt weight cotton, lawn) but if your fabric requires pattern matching it would be sensible to bring a metre if you can. We will provide everything else, including interfacing, interlining, leather handles etc.

You will also need your regular domestic sewing machine (which you should be confident in threading and using to a basic level) scissors, pins and matching thread. Please bring a zipper foot for your machine if you have one and quilters clips if you own them. Don’t worry if not, pins will be fine.
