Would you like to make your very own leather clutch?
Perfect for gifts or just for you!
The Ida Clutch is an intuition in the sewing world and must have for all sewing gals from the amazing Kylie - from Kylie And The Machine.
We are excited to be again hosting the Ida Leather Clutch Workshop with amazing leather class kits lead by Michelle Walsh from MEW Designs.
Michelle Walsh is a Brisbane based designer and the face behind MEW Designs. Michelle completed her Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising in 2019 and realised that bag making was the next big adventure.
Michelle has been working in her studio (sometime called the laboratory) to create unique bags and bag patterns. Recently she’s joined forces with some other bag making addicts to create the 2021 Bag Making Challenge, that started as a challenge to make patterns from our stashes and has turned into a challenge to make new patterns.
