This workshop is suitable for those with basic machine skills (thread the machine, wind a bobbin, sew a straight stitch). It is a great introduction to zip insertion and a fab project for using up fabric remnants.
Make not 1 but 2 fabric pouches – choose either 2 the same size or 1 ‘standard size pencil case’ and 1 coin purse size pouch.
Learn how to insert a zip using a zipper foot and make a gorgeous lined zipped pouch. Choose from a selection of fabrics to suit your style and the intended use. These zipped pouches can be used for literally anything – stationery, sewing kit, make up, board game pieces, playing cards, jewellery…….
They would make a fantastic personalised gift for someone, especially teachers as pretty and practical end of year thank you gifts. Fill it with some chocolate treats, a handmade gift from your child or useful teacher items like highlighters or post it notes!! Or even get ahead of the game for September for your kid’s stationery!
