Upcycled Pouch Craft

Sunday, July 28, 2024 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Part of the Adult Summer Library Challenge!

Join Librarian Alicia and make a durable and surprisingly sophisticated pouch from the most humble of materials: a discarded mailer. Creativebug's Maya will show you how to dissect a Tyvek® envelope and paint it for charming, distressed effect. You can add designs with hand-carved or store-bought stamps and install a zipper to finish. All the stitching is done by hand with the running stitch so there is no machine needed. You'll have endless ways to organize all your bits and pieces, as well as a go-to handmade gift for any occasion.

This free program is for ages 13+ and all materials are provided. Registration is required and limited to 10. Please register by emailing loref@lakeoswego.city or by calling 503-675-2540.

The program will meet in the library conference room.

The library is located at 706 Fourth Street, Lake Oswego.

The videos shown in class can be accessed anytime by visiting https://www.creativebug.com/lib/oswegolibrary, creating an account, and typing in your Lake Oswego library card number.
