Make your own Laptop, iPad, or Smart Phone Sleeve, Saturday 12th October 2019

Do you have a laptop, iPad, tablet or smart phone you want to transport safely and keep protected? Join our 2-hour workshop and learn how to make your own personalised sleeve for your device.

Using recycled and reclaimed textiles, you will learn how to create a sleeve to fit the size and needs of your gadget in a fabric of your choice – so you can make it as jazzy or as understated as you like! This simple pattern also gives you the choice to add buttons, zips or buckle closures to complete the design. A great opportunity to learn basic sewing machine skills or refresh your knowledge of machine sewing. You will go home with your unique cover and the ability to duplicate this model in any shape and size you like, so that you can keep all of your devices safe and protected.

Everybody is welcome as no previous sewing experience is required. If you own a sewing machine then you are welcome to bring this along with you and work with this during the workshop. Otherwise we will provide all sewing machines, equipment, tools, and materials needed, as well as tea and coffee to fuel your creativity.
