ESHO Purse
Saturday 20 January – Sold Out

Saturday 20 January 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Everyone Should Have One - purse workshop



This boxy and totally practical purse can have multiple uses. The wide flat base and extended zipper design makes these purses easy to get into and easy to see all your gear…. haberdashery bits and pieces, gadgets, baby items, cosmetics, tools, etc.

The ESHO Purse make a great gift for either a man or a women…kids love them too! Just choose an appropriate fabric to suit the need.

This simple construction consists of all straight seams, but you’ll build your skills by learning how to handle multiple layers of fabric.
