Crafty Storage Basket Saturday 28th August – afternoon 1.30 – 4.30pm
Tutor – Catriona Brown
This class will show you how to make a fabric basket with stylish leather handles and a draw string closure across the top that can be used as a project bag. You can make a smaller basket utilising fat quarters or a larger basket suitable for bigger projects. We will cover a number of techniques including using different types of interfacing, binding the top of the basket and making a draw string closure. We will also explore attaching leather handles with rivets, we will supply the rivets and have a leather hole punch and hammer available allowing you to try out this fun and attractive bag handle technique. These baskets make ideal storage solutions for all your crafty projects or anything else you can think of.
Sewing machine experience is necessary, experience using a rotary cutter to cut exactly sized pieces would also be useful. Bring your sewing machine, fabric (exact amounts will be sent with your order confirmation) and basic sewing kit. Sewing machines are available on request.
