Easy Sew Yoga Mat Bag – August 2018

August 4, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Easy Sew Yoga Mat Bag Class - Upcycled World

What is the Yoga Mat Bag Class?

This is a fun and practical easy sew class to grow your sewing repertoire and build your sewing machine confidence. Join in the fun and learn to sew this made to measure eco-friendly yoga mat bag with two pockets, ideal for a water bottle and strap.

What will you do in this class?

We’ll start off by measuring your mat and adjusting the design. Please bring your yoga mat with you as your bag is made to measure.

You’ll then learn how to correctly mark a shape onto fabric, use a rotary cutter and mat to cut your textile pieces. You’ll also be shown how to sew around corners, how to make a make a strap, attach an envelope pocket, finish a seam with zigzag stitch, how to insert a circular base (great for sleeves) and make a drawstring top for your bag.

Why take the Yoga Mat Bag class?

This is a friendly and relaxed class with plenty of individual attention from our tutor.

In order to join this class, you need to be able to thread a sewing machine, wind a bobbin and sew in a straight line. That’s it. We’ll teach you the rest.

We have sewing machines here but you are welcome to bring your own machine too. Fabrics are included but please do bring your own if there’s a textile that you want to use for your bag. Reducing our carbon footprint is important to us and as we are sewing upcyclers, much of our fabric has been gifted or been something else before.

There will be tea, coffee and biscuits to keep you going!
