Service Description

Bags are one of our favourite projects to sew - they use a range of skills, let you play with different fabrics and you end up with something useful you can keep or give as a great gift! Country Cow Designs is a UK based Husband & Wife team who have created a great range of useful & beautifully designed bags from small pouches to handbags & backpacks. They also sell a collections of high quality hardware & fabric which correspond with their patterns. The Daythum Sling is a great small backpack - it's large enough for a standard water bottle & has a great zip pocket on the back ideal for keeping you phone safe. The pocket on the front and strap details mean you can show of your fabric too! Sewing Level This workshop is for CONFIDENT SEWERS ONLY The pattern involves sewing through multiple layers, curves & attaching binding - it's listed as an intermediate level project, the majority is simple sewing but the final construction is fiddly so not ideal for new sewers.
