P320 - Sewing Leather? On a Domestic Machine? It’s in the Bag!

$ 155  


NOTE: Sewing machine experience is required. This is an intermediate sewing class. You are being taught how to construct a project - not being taught how to sew. We will have 10 machines available for this class if you are traveling. Please contact glenny@artandsoulretreat.com to reserve a machine. If you live locally, please bring your machine and let us know so we can reserve for others!

Let Russell show you how to turn your leather woes to WHOAS! In this class you’ll learn the fundamentals to successfully sew leather on while being taught how to construct a leather bucket bag with an interior welt pocket. From selecting the correct leather, needles, thread, notions and feet to setting grommets, managing hardware and construction, this class will leave you both inspired to make and teach your own leather bags.

Materials Fee $ 50.00 paid to instructor at beginning of class Includes
 All materials and pattern for making a leather and denim bucket bag.
