Check out these pics from our most recent Color Block Bag workshop! It’s one of my favorite classes to teach because just about everyone finishes and carries her handbag home with her, sometimes in use! Seeing each bag take shape – literally – never gets old for me. I also love how everyone in class comes up with ideas for their “next” bag, because you really can’t make just one – variations in pockets, closures, size and shape, color combinations, handles and an endless list of other options lets you make this bag your own, over and over again! And to help them along with these fun options, a copy of my third book, African Accents ON THE GO! is included with the workshop as a take-home textbook. Just a few reasons why this handbag remains a workshop favorite!
This is one of mine. It started out as a bag, but never quite got finished so I inverted it and it morphed into a perfectly sized cover for my Janome travel sewing machine.
Ready to make your own? We have the printed Color Block Bag pattern or downloadable PDF pattern, and the Jacquard Batik squares available online. Or better yet, arrange a workshop for your guild, or just an informal group of friends.
Contact Lisa for details… then carry a bit of Africa wherever you go ; )
