REGULAR PRICE: $60.00 


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 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
  • 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, will be provided in the cost of the workshop.
