Join us for our new accessories workshop, sew your own rucksack!

We will be using the Range Pattern by Noodle-Head. 

A useful and fun backpack to make! It’s great for any outing where you need to be hands free! The fold-over top and closure keep things secure, while the front zippered pocket keeps essentials within easy reach. Adjustable straps make it wearable in any season.

You will be sent your pattern when you book in to pre-cut your pattern pieces from your fabric before the workshop - but don't panic, they're mostly rectangles!  Please get in touch if you have any questions.

You do not need to cut any interfacing- we will do this in class.
