Blue Calla Workshop

We are excited to be bringing Celine from Blue Calla back for new classes!

We've got three exciting workshops planned this Spring! Join us for full days of sewing, and learn how to create the Plumbago Organizer Pouch, the NEW and EXCLUSIVE Strawflower Bag, and the Waterlilly Tote. All with expert instruction from Celine, owner of Blue Calla!


Organizer Pouch

The Plumbago Organizer Pouch has so many useful possibilities! It can be a sewing notion organizer, a craft/art supply pouch or even a first aid kit!

On the outside of the pouch is one zippered compartment with 2 mesh/clear vinyl pockets at the back and elastic loops to hold the items of your choosing. Elastic placement suggestions are provided for pens/markers but you can customize them to suit your needs.

Inside the pouch are 3 additional mesh/clear vinyl pockets, 1 zippered pocket as well as 1 large zipper compartment that acts as a divider for the interior of the pouch.

There is a metal frame within the bag that helps it stay open wide when unzipped.

NEW Strawflower
Exclusive Bag

Available for the very first time at this workshop, the Strawflower bag is the latest creation from Blue Calla Patterns. This unique small sized duffle is a great take-to-work, overnight or carry-on bag!

Carry the Strawflower bag with its crossbody strap, or with it’s top handles, placed at the ends of the bag, rather than the tradition front/back.

The Strawflower bag features a large zippered main compartment, with 2 interior slip pockets and 2 small interior zippered pockets. There is one small zippered pocket on the exterior side of the bag; the perfect spot for your metro card or passport.

This project is great for a confident beginner.

This large sized tote can be made in waxed canvas, cork, vinyl, regular cotton fabric or a combination of these materials. Customize the look to your personal taste, the sky is the limit!

With one exterior zippered pocket hidden under a small flap, and 2 large slip pockets on the back, this bag has excellent easy-access storage space. The interior of the bag has a zippered main closure, one interior zippered pocket and 3 interior slip pockets to keep you fully organized. This tote has 2 top carry handles and one removable adjustable strap.

This project is suitable for an intermediate sewist. As always, preparation time will be key to ensure all fusing is complete prior to assembly.
