Merchant & Mills describe their Orton Bag pattern as a marvellous oversized tote bag and this bag is big enough to fit in everything you need.
We have made our Orton beauty in a Gertrude Made Barkcloth for that vintage "carpet bag" look and feel, but you can choose to make your bag in any of the gorgeous fabric we have in store. A heavier fabric gives a great result for bag making.
At this workshop, you will learn how to read a pattern, cut your bag out, following the instructions, stitch and overlock your bag, make your handles and finish your bag! Simples!
This workshop is designed for beginners who know how to use their sewing machine.
