Handmade Monday - A vintage craft class

How are you on his fine Monday?  Ok I know Monday is almost over, but I squeezed in at the last minute!

I wanted to tell you about my next big Craft Class.  It's going to last all day and will hopefully take place in the courtyard outside my little studio weather permitting.

Vintage Messenger Bag - All day special
@ Beautiful Things HQ
Sunday 22nd July 11am - 4pm
Learn how to make one of these beautiful cross body messenger bags.  Working with vintage materials and trims you will be shown how to patchwork your own design using a minimum of 3 sections (as shown) and encouraged to go as 'wild' as you like! Your bag can be square or rectangular, large or small the choice will be yours.  

The day will take place in the studio courtyard with bunting and crochet throws a plenty and will include a full afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones and cake served on vintage china at 1pm (lunch).  This class is strictly limited to 6 people and includes all materials + afternoon tea.  

The class costs £58 per head

  1. Sounds like a lot of fun - hope the sun shines for you! x

  2. This sounds really exciting. I hope it goes well. You have certainly thought about every detail. I love the fabric you have used for this bag - shame that if I had it it would be spoilt in 10 seconds flat (I have 3 boys!) Good luck :)

  3. Sounds like a lovely day to be had!
