I've had loads of requests for a sew-along so I've finally got one scheduled.

This is going to be very in depth, across 4 sessions covering everything from printing the pattern, to choosing fabrics, to cutting & interfacing and sewing. It’s designed to cover first time bag makers through to the more experienced.

We’re splitting it up so you can pick and choose which sessions you join us for. All the sessions will be available to watch afterwards if you can’t join the live. My sister Debbie will be doing the sewing while I answer questions and go over the instructions.

To take part, you’ll need to have the pattern. The first session is all about preparation. If this is your first bag, you don’t want to miss that first session! We’ll also be discussing suppliers and brands. This session is two weeks before the next so you have plenty of time to order in supplies ready for the start.

Check out the full schedule below. 

Email me if you have any questions:

Oh and there’ll be weekly prizes too!
