From rags to bags - textile recycling at its most glamorous! This workshop is a seasonal spin-off from my extremely popular 'Rags to Riches' except you get to make a gorgeous little evening bag. Perfect for the upcoming Festive season.

I've created 'Rags to Bags' especially for Christmas so you can make a lovely evening bag for all those parties.

What will I learn?

-how to repurpose old clothing, household textiles, and scraps of trimmings
-use the utility stitches of a basic sewing machine for decorative effects
- how to use metallic transfer foils to add a bit of bling.
- how to make a lovely little evening bag in your choice from two styles offered

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Rags to Bags - Creative Textile Upcycling are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
