The Bag Makers Workshop

Babylon Sew Along Workshop

Let's put a kit together!  Aug 12, 2023 9am-3:30pm PDT

PLEASE READ: Because this is a sew along, the only recordings for this session will be raw, unedited versions that will be posted in the private Facebook group.

Sew Along Description:

This is not our usual virtual workshop.  If you have purchased a kit from Babylon Leather and have not attempted to make it yet, or found the videos a little hard to follow, you should join us on Aug 12, 2023 while Teresa Stanton helps to overcome your hesitation and create a beautiful leather handbag. 

Or perhaps you have been looking at these gorgeous kits and haven't yet pulled the trigger. This FREE sew along is all you need to get going on these fantastic bags. 

Maybe you don't even know about Babylon Leather. Take a look and you will quickly see a large selection of lovely bags that are available as kits that are "semi-finished". This means the pattern has been cut from very nice leather, all edge painting has already been done for you (score!) and some of the pieces might already be stitched or the hardware has been installed. The kit includes everything needed to complete the bag, allowing the focus to be completely on the hand stitching. So let's do that together!  

For this virtual sew along, it is not a requirement to have a certain kit. If you already have one you want to work on, that is fine. If you want to purchase a kit, use the link above, but if you want to get 20% off, use the discount code "TBMW20" with your purchase.

Please note: Because not everyone will not be working on the same bag, we will not be completing a bag in this one-day session. This is only to get you started so you feel confident to complete your own bag.

Joining the private Facebook group is required in order to attend this sew along. All links for the Zoom session will only  be posted in the private Facebook group. Links to the group will be provided in your confirmation email once you sign up.
