Sewing Leather Bags

Sewing Leather Bags

Are you intrigued by the possibility of designing your own purse? Have you admired designer bags and purses and wished that you could make your own?

I am thrilled to launch my new bag design course with Topstitch Makers. This bag design course will help you to create beautiful purses and bags that blend style and function. Through live instruction, you will learn to draft a basic bag pattern and explore a variety of design options. From concept to construction, we will work through three classic bag styles: Clutch, Hobo and Tote. With an emphasis on detail, each lesson will present new techniques such as adding gussets, pockets, structure as well as straps and handles to further develop your skills.

You will have opportunities to get help, ask questions, post your progress and benefit from posts your instructor will write that are tailored to the skills you will be learning. This will take place in a dedicated bag design course activity feed.

Patterns and instruction will be included with the course series.

The sewing sessions will take place over zoom in a professional studio with multiple camera views.

The live sewing sessions will be recorded for you to return to at your convenience.
