Make Your Own Tote Bag Workshop with LoveAndWest

Over two hours, you'll be stepped through making a fully lined and pocketed tote bag. Choose your own gorgeous vintage linen, from the LoveAndWest 'embarrassment' of teatowels. All materials provided: vintage linen teatowel, vintage fabric interior, pocket and denim ticking for handles. You'll also get a printed worksheet to take home with your sweet, new, repurposed tote, so you can make again and again. You'll be able to change up any fabric: teatowel, lovely tablecloth, towels or curtains into a practical, roomy, unique shopping tote – once you've got the pattern, you'll be able to make it to any size you like.

Plastic free your shopping and reuse and remake as gifts for friends. Bring your own machine or use one of ours.

Held in the LoveAndWest studio, Arncliffe, with ample on street parking and within walking distance of the railway station. Three participants per class/ $75 per person
