Sew this cute velvet bag and create zero fabric waste! You will each be working on your own bag and you can choose from 3 colours beforehand.

Why choose zero waste?

The average amount of fabric that is wasted when garments are cut is 15%.

In 2015, it is estimated 400 BILLION square metres of fabric is produced. 15% of this means 60 billion square metres is wasted! 

The Bags will be pre-cut but you will get a chance to look at the pattern and see how it is made and combined with other products to create zero waste.

You'll learn how to:

  • Sew with velvet
  • Sew a lining and finish with a hand stitch.
  • Finish edges without an over locker
  • Learn about zero waste and a brief history of zero waste pattern making
  • Create an intermediate sewing project including sewing seams, finishing the edges and adding a strap


We recommend that you already know how to thread and use a sewing machine, as there won't be time to teach you during the lesson. You can check out our Learn To Sew workshop or Contact Us to arrange a 1:1 beforehand. It is advised that you are an intermediate sewist for this course, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
