Backpack workshop Online – Weds 1st and 8th Dec 6.30-8.30pm


SKU: N/A Category:


This workshop is online via zoom – you will need to attend both evenings to start and finish the project – there may be some homework in between depending on the stage we get to in week one!

In this workshop we will be making a Rucksack/Backpack – it has a drawstring close and a flap with magnetic clasp to secure. It also has a zipped internal pocket and a larger open pocket. It has a grab handle at the top and adjustable shoulder straps. The finished size is ….

Options at time of booking are – workshop only and you supply all fabric and bag hardware (sliders, loops, zip, magnetic clasp and cord) or workshop inc hab (you supply your own fabric but I supply the sliders, loops,magnetic clasp. cord and zip) or workshop inc full kit which is all fabric and hab.  Postage for haberdashery and/or fabric is included in the cost.

If supplying your own fabric you will need half a metre of fabric for the outer, and the same for your lining and flap etc. I would suggest you use a thicker type cotton for the outer and a thin cotton lining works well for the lining). I’ve also used a co-ordinating thicker cotton for the flap and drawstring casing.  Straps for the backpack can be made using your contrasting fabric or webbing – those having a full kit from me will have webbing for the straps included. If anyone requires webbing I have black and dark grey in stock and this will be an extra charge of £2 plus postage should you require it (you need 2.2m of it).

If you are having fabric from me I will contact you before the workshop to discuss choices and send a kit to you. Those supplying your own fabric and/or hab I will send you the pdfs to cut your fabric beforehand and message about zip colour.
