: : hazel hipster - the e-course : :

My most popular sewing pattern is now and e-course!  You can come sew this bag right along with me on my backporch. Ok, not literally, but pretty darn close.  This e-course is a series of 3 videos you can watch from the comfort of your home, anytime.  The course is roughly 1 hour long - broken into 3 easy segments.

The version we are making via this e-course looks like this:hazel

I will walk you through every step of the way:

  • How to prepare your materials, cutting and how to use fusible interfacing
  • I'll talk about what my favorite interfacing is for bags...
  • We will do a patchwork style strap for this crossbody bag that you will love
  • We will create a ruffle using a gathering stitch
  • Make divided slip pockets
  • Learn how to insert a magnetic snap

The class is made up of 3 videos that will take you through the various steps.  You can watch them all at once or on separate days.  I will have text information up as well to help you along and we can chat in the comment section if you'd like or send me an email.

Stacie says, “Let me just start by saying I absolutely loved the online video course!!!! I’m a visual learner so seeing you on the screen while sewing made this the perfect way for me to take a class. And the fact you can go back and forth on the video was so helpful! I think this is such a great idea!   I thought the video was great and the instructions were very clear. You explained things in detail which is always very helpful!”

I know you'll love the Hazel Hipster as much as I do and all of my friends!  Karen from Shabby Ever After had this to say about our e-course:

I was so excited to be able to participate in this video tutorial ( or should I say e-course) … I do a lot of sewing (check out my fb page ShabbyEverAfter) and even though I've made a few little kiddies bags, I have never attempted to make an adult bag ... and rarely get the chance to make anything for myself!  So with great excitement I went out to the fabric store to select fabrics for ME!  It was great to know exactly what interfacing to use as well, had it been left to me I definitely would have been standing there forever trying to decide which one.
I loved the video introductions, the Two Peas Studio looks so idyllic and loved the beautiful music used too.  I found all the instructions really easy to follow and it was so good to actually see what Trish was doing step by step instead of trying to work it out from written instructions, it was also great to be able to pause and go back over the video really easily as well instead of trying to work out which step I was on from a piece of paper.  There were so many great little tips that you might not get in written instructions (or you might ignore!) that really makes all the difference to the finished bag.
I was also so pleased that Trish made my first attempt at inserting a magnetic snap so easy and successful … I had always been nervous to do this before but it really was easy peasy!!
I had a few interruptions so didn't complete my bag in one sitting but it really didn't take long.  I was so pleased with the finished result and am planning to make another one pretty soon.   This really is a great bag … my daughter has her eyes on it already I think!

Registrations are open!  See you on the back porch!
