During this one day workshop you will make a ‘Bali’ Backpack with adjustable straps, external pocket and hidden zip closure.

Choice of three sizes, perfect for any family member and a choice of either using webbing for straps or making your own straps.

Learn how to make boxed corners, a slip pocket with flap, attach a magnetic snap closure, attach a zip closure and how to add adjustable straps from webbing tape, or make your own straps.

Bags will need to be made using quilting weight cotton, as anything heavier will be too thick for the sewing school machines to handle.


Small – Height 37cm x Width 23cm x Depth 9cm (14.5″ x 9″ x 3.5″) approximately

Medium – Height 44cm x Width 26cm x Depth 10cm (17.5″ x 10.25″ x 4″) approximately

Large – Height 50cm x Width 31cm x Depth 12cm (20″ x 12.25″ x 4.75″) approximately

This workshop is not suitable for beginners to sewing, but is suitable for beginners to bag making.

You will need to know how to confidently and competently use a sewing machine.

This will be an intensive day of sewing so please be prepared to be tired but happy at the end of it!

The pattern is included in the workshop price but you will need to provide your own materials for this project, all available to purchase from Nimble Thimbles.

Some preparation will be required before the class ie: cutting out your pieces and fusing interfacing. There is help in the shop if you need for this.

Sewing machines are provided in the sewing school but you will need to bring your own equipment with you.
Once you have booked and closer to the date, you will be emailed a list of materials & equipment needed for this project.
