At next week’s meeting (10.00 am start) this group is having a mini workshop to insert zippers in small Japanese purses. Here is an image of the purses:
Convenor of the group, Wendy Pang, has sent the following information so you can prepare your purse body:
Zipped purse workshop
By request, Yvonne will run a hands-on workshop on putting zips in small purses at our Small Japanese Projects meeting on Wednesday 27 March 10 am -12 pm.
For the workshop, you will need a partly-made pre-quilted purse. Use the pattern Yvonne gave out at her demonstration last year. Alternatively, use any simple zipped purse pattern you have. Or prequilt a 23 cm square to make a pencil case.
· Purse body, prequilted, and with bias binding on the two edges where the zip will go
· Appropriate size zip. (For the 23 cm square version, use a 20 cm zip.)
· Fabric to line the purse
· Sewing machine including power cord and foot
· Normal sewing equipment including pins
If you don’t wish to participate, bring something to sew.
Please be very prompt to arrive and to set up your machine, so that we can all start together.
