Youth & Teen Creative Day: Mesh Bag & Valet Tray

Youth & Teens Creative Day 3: Mesh Bag & Valet Tray

Try new machines and tools with our Creative Days for youth and teens!

In the morning, students will use the serger (overlocking machine) to create mesh zippered bags. This is a great intro project for the serger, which is used often in garment and fashion sewing. These bags are perfect for keeping favourite clothing items separate and protected in the wash or organizing your overnight bag.

In the afternoon, students will create a collapsible valet tray. Students will choose their own fabric and snap colour for a custom look! Valet trays are excellent for keeping a desktop organized, or storing your favourite accessories.

Check out our guide below to see if the Embellish Youth & Teen Creative Day is a good fit for your pre-teens or teens (ages 9 and up)!

All participants should be comfortable using scissors and understand safe scissors use. They must also be able to follow instructions in a group setting. We have a fun schedule of doing different projects and crafts throughout the day – participants should have the interest and attention span to take part for the full day.

Conduct Policy: Our policy is that participants behave in a way that shows self-control, responsibility, respect, and age-appropriate maturity. Horseplay, dangerous behaviour, irresponsibly using materials, etc., is ABSOLUTELY not allowed and any student conducting themselves in a manner deemed dangerous or disruptive will be held accountable and a parent will be contacted immediately to return and pick them up.

Please see our Class Guidelines and Policies before registering.

Embellish Creative Day will run 10:00am – 5:00pm.

There will be a 30 minute scheduled lunch break from 1:00pm and a 15 minute morning and afternoon break. Please ensure kids are sent with a packed lunch. Kids can also bring snacks/drinks to enjoy during the day. Please ensure these are peanut free. We will have filtered water available.

Class Size: Classes are intentionally kept small to allow for individual attention and learning from fellow classmates as well as the instructor. If you wish to register for a class that is sold out, please send an email request. We may be able to increase the enrollment number or add you to the waiting list in the event there is a cancellation. Email:

Waiver of Liability: Prior to the class, you will be sent a form (to the email address used at checkout) to fill out with your child's name and age, emergency contact information, and a waiver of liability. Completing this form is required for your child to participate in Embellish Creative Days.
