Sew Good for Teens & Tweens! Machine Sew a Bag with Andrea Taylor



Description

This school holidays, start your machine stitching journey at Opendrawer. In just one class, you'll learn how to drive your sewing machine (or ours) while you make a great cross-body bag. You'll take home your finished bag at the end of the class, made from your choice of fabric.

If you've never sewn before, you will make a simple market-style bag. If you have a bit of experience, you'll make the shaped bag with a mitred gusset. You can continue to grow your skills in the September school holidays.

Materials fee: $10 to tutor.

About the tutor: The newest member of the Opendrawer team, Andrea Taylor brings us 20 years' experience as a textile artist and teacher. Andrea is that rare creature, an expert who can think like a beginner - because good technique makes things easier forever. She's also creative, fun and an inspiration to be around.

Lauren really enjoyed the class. She is very proud of her padded bag and I think she did a lovely job. She would definitely be interested in another class at a later date.
