Christmas Bottle Bag & Gift Bag – Afternoon Session
December 2 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm£25
Make a Christmas Bottle Bag & Small Gift Bag
During this half day workshop Mary-Louise will take you through the process to make two different types of drawstring bags that you can use to make lovely reusable gift bags. One will be large enough and suitable to be used as a protective bottle bag and the other small and delicate for jewellery or perhaps to house some reindeer dust.
You will be provided with some Christmas fabrics and cord to create these bags. The methods used will be transferable to other shapes and sizes of bags that you might like to create in the future.
Patterns and instructions will be provided to take you through the making process. You will cut out your pieces and quilt the bottle bag fabric. You will be lining the bottle bag as a way of creating a neat finish with no seams on show. The small gift bag will use French seams to achieve a neat finish. Two different methods will be shown and used to create the drawstring channels.If you have time you may also wish to embellish the bags with small details.
