From rags to bags - textile recycling at its most glamorous! This workshop was developed from my extremely popular 'Rags to Riches' except you get to make a gorgeous little evening bag. Usually only run at Christmas-time, but now so popular, I've rolled it out for the rest of the year too. These embroidered bags are the perfect accessory to a wedding outfit, or for a special holiday night out.
What will I learn?
-repurpose old clothing, household textiles, and scraps of trimmings
-use the utility stitches of a basic sewing machine for decorative effects
-learn how to use metallic transfer foils to add a bit of bling.
-make a lovely little evening bag in your choice of two styles offered.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rags to Bags - Creative Textile Upcycling are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
