About this event

If like me you’re fed up with carrying a heavy bag around, then change to a hands free backpack.

You can design your own by starting off with a basic shape and customise it. Change the size, shape put pockets where you want them, inside or out. What shape flap do you want? How to fasten it? There are so many ways to customise your backpack that no-one else will ever have!

Skill level:

Basic sewing machine skills required.

What to bring:

  • 1/2 metre of upholstery weight fabric
  • 20cm of different upholstery fabric( if you want the sides to be different from the main body)
  • 1/2 metre of lining fabric
  • 1/2 metre of fusible fleece
  • 1 x 56cm open ended zip
  • 3 x magnetic snaps
  • Matching thread

There may be other small items to purchase depending on the finish you choose.

Janome sewing machines will be provided on the day along with a hot drink. You will also receive a 10% discount card to use in-store.
