Learn to Sew a Hipster Hip Bag




Sunday May 19th 12.30pm – 5pm

Hip bags, Fanny packs or Bumbags really are a thing! No wonder, they are stylish and practical. Especially in the summer for holidays, travel, festivals or concerts, they are super cool and super convenient.  “Bum” bag may be a misnomer since you can wear it across the back, or like a cross-body bag.

In this four hour workshop you will learn to make your own Hipster Bag!

Skill level required

Ideal for sewers who are confident beginners. You will insert a zipper but if you haven’t done it before, no problem. This is a great class to learn how.
