The ideal class to take after the absolute beginners class.

You will practice inserting them and then you will design and make a zippy pouch. You can make your pouch as big or small as you want and can use it for example as a small purse, a make up bag or a pencil case.

I will supply the fabric, the zips and everything else you may need. You will go home with a cool and useful project and a handy new skill. You know how many people are petrified of putting in zips? Even experienced seamstresses? Well, you will not be one of them!

Please bring a packed lunch.

All materials and machines included. You will also get a copy of my sewing handbook to take home (RRP£15) so you won’t have to take notes!
