MAKE A TOTE AND WASH BAG
Get to grips with sewing with our beginner’s sewing course.
In this course, we will walk you through all the steps to get you started on your sewing journey and build your confidence with some simple activities. Learn how to set up and use a sewing machine, follow a simple pattern and sew fastenings such as zips and buttons.
You will make a simple, handy buttoned tote bag and a wash bag with a zip and lining from Oeko-Tex certified canvas and organic cotton and gain a strong foundation of sewing skills which you can then apply to future projects.
At the end of your course, you will be able to start making for yourself at home or progress onto our Guided Sewing Projects course and further build on your skills and confidence.
