Tarting things up a bit

Yesterday's Customised Bag class was all about the fiddly bits that can be used to polish up a wide variety of bag designs.
There were hard bases and purse feet, super-duper straps and zippered closures.  
 There was ooh-ing and ahhing over crochet embellishments...
 ...and recycled Japanese obi fabrics. 
 There was delicious Croatian apple slice (ahem... which didn't last long..) and 'Grandma's cake' (a scruptious walnut-meal cake), thanks to Anonija, who happens to be from Croatia. 

Nobody needed the TimTams.  (Elephant stamp for Antonija!)
And special elephant stamps for Jo, who braved the pain of recent surgery and bomb-your-brain-out painkillers to come to class, and to Amanda who flew all the way down from Brisbane. 

Thanks for a lovely day, girls!


If you need to learn the basics of bag-making (before learning the fiddly bits), you might find that the Beginner's Bag in a Day class is more your thing (we cover the basics of interfacing, construction, straps and hardware in that one).

Looks like fun. Is Anonija taking the 'Zipper' class on July 21st by any chance?
