Online Interactive Workshop: Iris Handbag Organiser!

We're delighted to be hosting this Iris Handbag Organiser workshop with the wonderful & hugely talented American crafter, Jennie Pickett of Clover & Violet fame! A really hands-on class, we're sure you're going to love making Jennie's fabulous creation!...

Introduction by Jennie:-

If you know me at all, you know I have an absolute love for sewing & organising and especially for the two combined! Yet, somehow my bag is always a bottomless pit for things I cannot find. So, I created the Iris Purse/Handbag Organiser to help keep things tidy inside my purse and make switching bags a breeze. With lots of slip pockets (no fewer than 12!!), a zipper pocket, and a clip for my keys, the organiser makes finding things in my bag easy and swapping bags a breeze!

In this workshop you’ll learn to add functional and decorative pockets, install an inset zipper, make drawstring sleeves, and how to assemble the bag. The finished case measures 8” wide x 4” deep x 6 ½” high.
