Create: Sew Easy

I took my very first sewing class recently at the incredible¬†Make Workshop, a tidy studio housed in an artist’s collective on the Lower East Side.¬† Dianna Rupp, the studio’s founder, sewing book author and creative force, patiently walked us through everything from bobbins to back stitches. And at the end of the two-hour Intro to Sewing Machine session I had a nifty wallet-style pouch to show for it.

For those who know their way around a sewing machine, Diana suggested a pouch like this to present small trinkets for a holiday grab bag or office gift swap. Gussy up movie tickets, coffee gift certificates, even a little tube of lip gloss will seem like a bigger deal with bespoke packaging.
