Dressmaking: Oxbow Tote Sew Along



£ 99.00

Looking to get into bag making?  Or just looking for the perfect holiday tote?!

The Oxbow is a versatile zippered top tote bag in two sizes – regular and overnight.  It features an easy-access front pocket, reinforced base, removable crossbody strap, and roomy interior with a slip pocket.

The pattern is included in the cost of this class and it even comes with instructions for quilting your bag if you want to customise it even more!

Suggested fabrics: Mid-weight canvas (6-8 oz.) for exterior and accent fabrics. Dry oilskin/waxed twill/waxed canvas can be substituted for exterior and/or accent fabric. Quilting cotton for lining.

In this class we will take you through:

  • Inserting an interior slip pocket
  • Insert a bag lining
  • Reinforce the base of the bag to make it nice and sturdy
  • Insert a zip
  • Work with the clip fastenings and other bag hardware
  • Talk about the difference in bag making materials

What to bring:

  • Your pre-cut pattern and fabric ready to sew (we don’t have time to cut in class unfortunately).  The pattern is included in the price and will be sent to you ahead of the class so you have time to prepare.
  • Basic sewing kit(scissors, pins, chalk etc)

This class will be held in our studio at 68 Morris park, 37 Rosyth Road, Glasgow, G5 0YE.
