DESIGN & SEW: Custom Overlook Tote - SOLD OUT

  • Klum House Workshop 3808 North Williams Avenue Portland, OR, 97227 (map)

Functional + sleek, The Overlook is your superwoman utility belt disguised as a fashion-forward tote. Made by you bragging rights!

During this all-day intensive workshop, intermediate stitchers (also suitable for advanced beginners) become bag-sewing experts and leave with a sleek, utilitarian, custom-designed tote.

The first part of the workshop includes a design lab, where you'll get the low down on functional considerations and customize the features that matter most to you. Then we'll break for lunch. Students will then cut their bag out of their fabric color of choice, then get to sewing! As a finishing touch, we'll choose our leather straps color and hardware colors in classic Klum House fashion.
