From rags to bags - textile recycling at its most glamorous! This workshop was developed from my extremely popular 'Rags to Riches' except you get to make a gorgeous little evening bag. Usually only run at Christmas-time, but now so popular, I've rolled it out for the rest of the year too. These embroidered bags are the perfect accessory to a wedding outfit, or for a special holiday night out.

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