Portsmith Tote

gather here Classes

The Portsmith Tote is a stylish, rugged take on the classic market tote. With durable, water-resistant waxed canvas, a unique envelope-fold base, high-quality leather straps, and strong metal rivets, the Portsmith will quickly become your favorite, everyday tote. Plus, it comes with “I made this!” bragging rights! Skills learned: sewing with heavy weight fabrics, installing rivets, and creating an envelope-fold.

Limited to 5 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
