Sewing 102: Leather Handled Totes

Length:  2.5 - 3 hours
Minimum Age: 18 years
Minimum Enrollment:3 students
Maximum Enrollment: 10 students  
Instructor: 
Malene Davis


Let's keep it real, shall we?  A tote with leather handles will most likely be your everyday purse, and not just a "once-in-a-while" carryall vessel.  It will be a modern, roomy purse that will hold everything (and make you look good while holding it, to boot).  Wanna learn how to make one?  Keep reading....  


In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will learn:

  • How to sew a sturdy, large-form tote bag with gusseted (squared) bottom
  • How to prep and rivet leather shoulder straps to your finished tote
  • How to strut your stuff knowing that you can go home and make a hundred more any ol' time

By the end of this workshop, you will go home with one large-form tote bag to call your own.  

WHAT TO BRING TO CLASS: 

  • 1/2 yard fabric (outer fabric)
  • 1/2 yard fabric (inner lining) 

** If combining fabrics (different fabric on top of purse than the bottom half of the purse), be sure to bring 3 DIFFERENT FABRICS (1/2 yard each) instead of 2.  

All other supplies, including leather straps, fusible interface, and rivets will be provided in the cost of the workshop.   

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE HAD MINIMAL PRIOR EXPERIENCE ON THE SEWING MACHINE. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SPOOL A BOBBIN AND RETHREAD A BASIC SEWING MACHINE WITHOUT GUIDANCE. IF YOU HAVE NEVER USED A MACHINE BEFORE AND FEEL YOU NEED EXTRA ASSISTANCE WITH THE ABOVE TASKS, WE RECOMMEND YOU TAKE OURINTRO TO THE SEWING MACHINE WORKSHOP.


NO NEED TO BRING YOUR MACHINE!  In all bee creative workshops, you'll use our Brother sewing machines to complete your wares.
