This workshop is ideal for kids aged 6+ who would like to spend a creative morning sewing and decorating their own book bag.
They will learn basic hand sewing techniques to construct a small canvas bag and design a panel for the front in fabric pens, which will be ironed on for them. There will be other trims and decorations for them to personalise their bags.
All materials will be provided. Kids will get to go home with their finished book bag.

An interesting fact about Alice…
Alice’s first pattern, the Flo Dress, was named after her then 3-year-old daughter. After getting thoroughly frustrated trying to make a commercial pattern, she decided to design her own and has been hooked ever since.
