Sew your own Japanese triangle tote bag with Stitchless Tree
Sun 7 May 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
Fabrications is proud to present a special workshop with our guest teacher Tree Walsh , Who has her own inspiring 'how to sew fashion' STITCHLESS TV YouTube channel.
Stitchless is for people that want to make accessories and clothes but don't have the time or the skills to do complicated dressmaking. Tree's speciality is to show you how to create stylish, on trend 'one-off' pieces using a few simple tricks that she's picked up in her 30 years of experience. To keep things simple she rarely uses pins or tacking, opting for thin strips of 'Bond-a-Web' or even thin strips of 'Double Sided Sticky Tape' to hold things in place and then it's a dream to sew!
In this class you will create a unique Japanese Triangle tote bag. You will learn to machine sew a lining to the main fabric and then with a clever folding technique, you magically transform your stitched creation into a bag!
