Here is the requirements list, and as instructed at the end you can do some preparation beforehand if you wish.

  • 25cm patterned fabric for outside of bag ( can be cotton or silk)
  • 25 cm coordinating fabric for lining
  • 2 x 40cm light cords, ribbons or sashiko thread for drawstrings
  • 4 beads large enough to thread cords through
  • Coordinating Sewing threads, needles, pins etc

If everyone wants to do a little before the class they can cut a 9 1/2″ square from both fabrics and sew around them (right sides together) a 1/4″ seam leaving a 1 1/2″ opening. Turn right side out, slip stitch closed and press lightly. The rest will be completed on the day.

This meeting is followed by the drop-in until 4pm, incorporating the Lucy Boston interest group.
