Crochet Gifts Workshop ~ Tapestry Crochet Bag
At Cotton Pod and Stitch we believe it is rewarding to be able to make bespoke and original gifts for our friends and family. This is the first of our crochet workshops aimed at making beautiful gifts and we plan to deliver more gift idea workshops in the future, its never too soon to plan your Christmas gift makes!!
This workshop will introduce you to tapestry crochet skills and ultimately lead to the creation of a beautiful tapestry crochet bag, designed by Drops Design. We hope that you will hone your current crochet skills, increase your technical expertise and improve your pattern reading, whilst having fun working with on the same project with fellow crochet fans.
This workshop is suitable for beginner + crocheters; you will need to be familiar with basic crochet stitches, in particular treble crochet and have some knowledge of working in the round and increasing stitches (although this will be reviewed).
