Zip Purse

Project BagCan you ever have too many beautiful purses? These purses can be used for so many things….as a purse when you just need the bare essentials to duck to the shops, storing jewellery or other small items when you travel, as a craft bag for a creative project, holding some baby essentials or medications and or as a great gift bag that eliminates single use wrapping paper!!

This online tutorial will be screened from our studio.

During this tutorial, Julie will be sharing all of her purse making secrets she has 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 tutorial as well as the simple calculations to make a bag whatever size you like.
