On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of May, I am running a two-day Zoom Workshop making the Grainline Portside Travel Set, which is a weekend travel bag set. This class includes an original copy of this pattern (printed in A4 and pattern in A0) and a pre-call to support you ahead of the weekend. Full details (lots of detail) below 😊⬇️
Who is up for a weekend of bag making? This is a repeat of the very successful weekends he
On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of May, I am running a two-day Zoom Workshop making the Grainline Portside Travel Set, a weekend travel bag set.
The Portside Travel Set comprises a weekend bag (20” x 11” x 12”), a smaller devices or toiletries bag (9” x 4” 6 ¼”) and a travel wallet 9” x 7 ½”. I originally made this set in 2018 for a family trip to New York. Since then, these bags have been all over Europe and the UK. They are sturdy, durable, and look great. It is terrific to customise your bag with a fabric of your choice. You will never lose your luggage again!
The weekend bag has two carry hands and a removable strap so the bag can be hung over a shoulder. The small bag has been ideal for cables and chargers but would be equally suitable for toiletries (or sewing supplies!), and the travel wallet is great for documents, a book, a Kindle or stationery.
I created a Portside Travel Set Pinterest Board for you to see what others have created with this pattern.
Sadly, this pattern is no longer in hard copy print so I will buy the required number of PDF copies and A0 patterns created and posted to each participant at the end of February. We will have a short Zoom call in April to ensure you have all the knowledge you need to cut the pattern, fabrics and interfacing out ahead of the weekend. This call will be recorded so that no one misses out.
The weekend will be relaxed and fun. I will teach from 10 am – 4 pm. We will focus on the weekend bag on Saturday and the smaller bag on Sunday. The session on Sunday will run from 10 am-3 pm. If everybody doesn’t make it that far, a short video will be available for the dopp bag and wallet construction.
