Why make bags?
Bag making is for anyone wanting to learn a new skill. It is a rewarding skill and once you start making your own handbags you'll never want to buy another mass-produced bag on the high street again! You get a sense of accomplishment when you make your own products and you will see the work that goes into making them. Moreover, you will love and care for your handbag that much more when you make it with your own hands. In our tutorials, you will learn all the basics from cutting leather to saddle stitching to finishing the raw edges of your work to a professional standard. You will need some leather crafting tools but you won't need a sewing machine to make bags at home.
The Handbag Atelier offers online courses for beginners wanting to learn how to make leather handbags and accessories by hand at home. In our bag making courses, you will get step-by-step instructions on how to make your item and you will learn about different types of leather and what are the essential tools that you will need at home. We have lots of different courses to choose from, from leather bags to accessories and wallets.
How does it work?
You can sign up to an individual course or a course bundle. Once you have made your purchase, you will receive a download link for the course material, including a 'how to make' video. For all the items, you will have the option of printing the patterns on A4 paper so they are home-printer-friendly. We also sell bag patterns separately with basic instructions that are aimed at bag makers and other crafters alike who have some experience and know which tools they need and how to use them.
