About the Event

Taking inspiration from the Japanese art of Origami this bag is created from two rectangles of fabric, 4 folds and just 10 seams (all straight lines so ideal for those not super confident with a sewing machine). It’s lined, stylish, reversible and with the clever addition of a popper in the handle can transform from a bag to a storage box in one simple ‘pop’! 

In this two hour workshop Christine will show you how to make and line your own bag using two fabrics of your choice. You will learn the folding techniques to create the bag shape from simple rectangles, how to pin and sew seams, create 3D corners, how to line with concealed turning holes to make the bag reversible and then finish with a topstitch and popper. 

Once you have mastered this pattern you will be able to recreate this bag in any shape and fabric. It is truly versatile and brilliant. 

This workshop is ideal for people looking to brush up their sewing machine skills or more confident users who just want to make something cool! 

We have six sewing machines for use so spaces are limited. Book early to guarantee your place. LoveCrafts have a wonderful selection of fabrics to choose from, visit here for inspiration, once you have booked your space Christine will contact you to get your fabric choices. 


Christine Leech loves to make things and loves to teach people how to make things! Having written 9 books on subjects from pom-poms to papercraft, printing, stitching and home sewing there’s not many crafts she can’t handle (apart from knitting and crochet!) She’s friendly, approachable and loves a crafty chat. Having run workshops for 3 to 300 people she is proud she’s doing her bit to make the world a more handmade place. Her projects are regularly featured in magazines such as Mollie Makes and Prima she was also one of the Craft Experts on Channel  4’s Kirsties Celebrity Craft Masters in 2019. 


Crafting is so much more than making. It's the connection between like-minded souls, it’s learning new skills and sharing your passion. It's that fuzzy feeling from making something with your own hands. It’s pure joy. And it’s the reason LoveCrafts exists.  Click here for more about LoveCrafts.
