Following a trip to Japan in 2019 your teacher Sharon, owner of Berry Quilt & Co, was inspired by the high profile bag section of the Tokyo Quilt Show to make more bags and to make bags that had very special elements or embellishment. One of the bags she tried was the Raindrop Bag which appealed because of its sweet shape, simple but clever construction and possibilities to feature pieced or stitched sections. It turned out to be a great bag to teach having some clever but manageable construction techniques that could be adapted to other larger or differently shaped bags. 

This is a great bag to carry your latest knitting or stitching project or a great handbag. It’s nice and deep (measuring approx 30cm wide x 45cm deep) and opens wide enough to fit a number of objects but the two handles grasped together keep your contents secure. Make it from your favourite fabrics taking the opportunity to choose fun combinations of contrasting handles and linings or bring some pre stitched work to make an even more specially embellished bag.

$100 includes bag pattern and some of the supplies, you’ll just need to bring your machine and your chosen fabrics. Requirements will be provided on booking. The class is suitable for any one who can use their sewing machine to sew straight stitches and who can manage scissors to cut out their fabrics.
