School Holiday Learn to Sew – Class 3 – Next Steps Zip Purse/Sewing Case
Project: Zip Purse/Sewing Case
These purses can be used for so many things….as a purse, a pencil case or as a sewing case to hold your essential sewing tools! They also are a delightful gift!
In this workshop I’ll be sharing all my purse making secrets I have developed over years of sewing and they will help you complete your own stunning projects. There are lots of great skills that will be covered in this workshop as well as the simple calculations to make a bag whatever size you like.
