A couple of weeks ago I took the first steps towards sharing my creative side by running a workshop in making shopping bags. Inspired by www.morsbags.com I had an open house and 5 lovely people made six bags between them.
It was a really lovely day. I enjoyed being able to pass on my skills and enable other people to gain some confidence using a sewing machine, and make some damn fine bags! On top of that I have been inspired to think up a design that has a pocket after helping Suzie to make a pocket in her bag.
It was also a great learning experience for me in how to co-ordinate people and resources and how to make sure everyone gets something from the day.
