Description

Sew Your Own Genoa Tote

Taught by Anna Ng from Blogless Anna

A denim tote bag with leather handles will be a both a beautiful and practical addition to your bag collection. The Genoa Tote is fully-lined, features a zippered pouch and a clip for your keys. The leather straps can be made in two lengths and two widths, and are attached with double-capped rivets creating beauty, strength and longevity. The Geona Tote comes in three sizes – small, medium and large – making it a bag for every occasion.

The leather handles will be pre-cut and supplied, and during the workshop you will have hands-on experience of attaching them to the tote with rivets. Practice leather and rivets will be available for participants to hone their skills. 

You will need to bring the following amounts of fabric for your tote. Choose one size only.
