Bagmaking with Julie Spinks
Six-week course, Thursdays 6-8.30pm, The Supper Room
Join seamstress Julie Spinks on this six-week course and leave with your own handmade wash bag, plus the sewing skills to take your crafting to another level.
The Retreat Wash Bag
The retreat wash bag is a simple zippered pouch with a wide base and a wide structured opening. There is a casing in the top where you insert two wire frames (one on each side), which helps it stay open when open, and helps turn the corners down when closed. It has two optional slip pockets inside and a long zipper that helps it open wide.
Finished product - 8 ½" x 5" x 4"
This is the perfect way to start your bag-making journey. A pattern with full instructions will be provided along with all the specialist materials & fabrics needed.
