Online Interactive Workshop: Sewing With Paper Fabric
We're delighted to once again welcome back the multi-talented Lucy Brennan for another inimitable workshop! This time Lucy shows you a whole host of items you can make by Sewing With Paper Fabric!...
Introduction by Lucy:-
Also known as 'Vegan Leather', Paper Fabric is a fabulous, washable paper-based material that you can sew with! It has a look of leather, the feel of card and there are countless possibilities for creating projects. We will be making two types of bags - a string closure reusable gift bag and a small clutch - as well as a cord keeper for storing your cords / earphones and a handy wallet. I will show you how to prep, cut, sew and embellish paper fabric. Perfect for gift giving or to keep yourself organised; you’ll have a stash of cute makes by the end of this class!

Additional Information relevant to this Online Interactive Workshop:-
Paper fabric is readily available and there are a number of different brands.
I used and recommend Kraft-tex. This can be found on sites like Amazon or through independent shops. Do look around as prices and sizes vary. Sample packs are available but they are not large enough to make the bags and are not necessarily the best value. Here are some UK online shops selling Kraft-tex or similar products:-
