A week last Thursday saw the final session of Thursday night bag making club at The Craft Studio, Nottingham. Although the course was about making handbags I really wanted help with perfecting my gadget bag making technique so decided to utilise the last session by making a couple of iPad mini sleeves. I used the Liberty print fabric that I sourced at The Vintage Suitcase Fair in Buxton and am really happy with the results although the peacock case could do with squaring but I blame that on sewing late at night on a work day.
With the heatwave (I hate hot weather) and a few transport issues I ended up missing two of the five sessions which I’m actually quite gutted about.The handbag that I made during sessions one and two is hanging with pride above my sewing machine (I’m using it to store fabric scraps) and it would have been great if I could have made more than one. Maybe I should enrol on the next course and start from scratch again? I already have my eye on the free machine embroidery workshop and signed up to start a Sewing and Home Crafts course at Bolsover’s Adult Community Education (ACE) centre so will definitely be keeping up with my new hobby.
