Beginner’s Taster Session: Drawstring Bag

Want to dip your toe in the sewing pool but not sure whether you want to commit to a full course yet? Then this is the class for you!

Learn how to sew whilst making yourself a lovely drawstring bag – perfect to use as a laundry bag as well as for your gym kit, travelling and keeping things nice and tidy.

This is a beginner’s class so no sewing experience at all is required.  We will teach you how to cut and pin fabric, thread a machine, sew in a straight line keeping to the seam allowance, and how to finish the inside of your bag to stop it from fraying. You will leave with a finished drawstring bag!
