Festival Ready – Bum Bags!

From: £50.00

Pockets are good but fanny packs with zips are safer!

Got a gig or summer festival to go to and wanna be hands free? Make one of these!

I have one, I love it! Its no ‘uniqlo fits fucking everything sling bag’ but you can make these in way more better colours! Way more better!

This is a straight forward and satisfying quick win unlined bum bag. 2 sizes to choose from –  Larger one for over the shoulder, and the smaller one to wear around your toot widdle waist.

Stable heavy duty woven fabrics work well, denim and canvas. However if you have some very cool printed fabric, we can back this with a heavier fabric to make it more robust.

Links are for the best price/range online, but you also grab these at your local store or join us for our BIG DAT OUT in Walthamstow on Saturday 1st June.

This workshop is suitable for beginners who have completed our ‘Learn to Sew’ short course or have other relevant basic sewing experience.

20% off for MT Members x


Do I need any experience?

Yes. If you have completed our ‘Learn to Sew’ short course this will be a perfectly good next project. You should be confident threading a machine and sewing straight lines.

Can I cancel my booking?

Absolutely. You are welcome to log into your account and cancel your booking for a full refund. You have up to 7 days before the start date to do this. After this period, all bookings are final.

What is the minimum age to attend?

We are happy to host well behaved people 16+ Please ensure your teenager is able to get home safely after the class or picked up on time.

What fabric is suitable?

Natural fibres are easiest to sew! Cotton, cotton blends, needlecord (tiny corduroy) chambray – anything not slinky and shifty. Woven Fabric – so not knit (stretchy)

Check out Raystitch, Dalston Mill, Fabric Godmother, Fabrics Galore and Woolcrest Textiles x

There are some small sequin fabrics that you could use, they are shifty little buggers to sew, but if you are up for a challenge , then me too!
