Tote Bag Sewing Lessons in Laguna 

For first-time sewers, i highly recommend starting with an easy project first, like this tote bag. That way, you have plenty of time to get adjusted to the machine, sewing, threading the machine and so on. 

Afterwards, you can shift to some basic drafting classes and make your own clothes. At Gawa Ko To Handicrafts, we not only sell sewing supplies, see our shop>> Http:// 

We also offer sewing classes and pattern drafting lessons. You can also simply choose the projects you like instead of going through a whole series of sewing course. 

We are also open to teach by appointment in Makati. Thank you! 

Start Sewing Now in Los Baños, Laguna

Para po sa mga gustong mag-aral manahi or subukan manahi, add nyo lang kami sa Facebook/instagram: gawakotohandicrafts 

Sa loob ng 3 Hours makakagawa na kayo ng isang tote bag. Madali lang sya gawin at kayang kayang ulitin sa bahay. Pag nasimulan mo na manahi, halos lahat ng mga tutorials sa pinterest or YouTube feeling mo kayang kaya mo na gawin. 

Masaya din kasi manahi na may ibang kasama or at least sasagot sa mga tanong mo habang tinatapos mo ang unang project. 

Meron din po kami account sa Shopee, if kailangan nyo ng tela o gamit pananahi! 

I imagined this when I was 24

When I was 24 years old, my teacher asked me what I wanted to do after school. That time, I felt really blessed to be able to study in a good school and in Paris, of all places. I told my teacher that I would share what I’ve learned. 

She said, “why, are there no Fashion schools around?” I replied there is, but not as much schools as now (14 years later) Though probably anyone who went to Fashion school would know the same things as I have learned. But I think in my own way, I could make a difference. And I’m so happy and excited that I get to share the fun world of Fashion in my very hometown, Los Baños. 

Today, we studied the basics of Fashion sketching and the next class we will be coloring them on Adobe Illustrator, my favorite!!!

Recently, I’ve been meeting people who want to try sewing or pattern drafting. Fortunately, most of my students finish something by the time the class ends. They always ask me, are you sure I will finish something? 😂

Absolutely! Come visit our shop this weekend, and see which projects you should try next! 

We are also looking for people who know how to crochet and knit and would like to share their knowledge. I have a few making inquiries. Just send me a message on my Facebook. Thank you!

Sewing Lessons for Kids

Hi for those asking Kids Sewing Lessons will be updated here.  Or if you are following our Facebook page (gawakotohandicrafts) in the albums, just look for Sewing Lessons for Kids.

These lessons are open for 8 – 12 years old. Younger ones should be accompanied by parents and the projects should be easy ones first like the pillow case or tote bag. Because we need them to get used to the sewing machine also for them to master sewing on a straight line. 🙂 Thank you.

Finally! I Can Make My Own Dress! 

I used to just look over Philippa’s desk and see what her project of the week was. She always has something fun to do and is hardly ever bored. 

I started sewing my own clothes and i knew that my dog can rip them in seconds 😂. They were hardly durable. 

But I knew all the theories but I can’t actually apply them. Soon enough, my sewing improved. I gained more confidence as I finished more and more projects. Finally, when I saw a design or a picture I don’t think of whether I can do it or not. I just calculated in my head, how much time it will take. 

You see, anything is doable as long as you are committed to completing it and taking the time to learn it. 
Today’s student said she’s always been interested about sewing. 🙂 And see the result of her two days work. Congratulations!!! 

Mermaid Tail Sewing Lessons


This week, we have one of our students sew a mermaid tail. She’s only 6!!! It was quite fun and interesting to do as I think she is one of our youngest students. She may be young but she knows what she wants. 🙂

She was assisted the whole time she was sewing. We also explained to her how the measurements was taken and she cut the paper pattern herself.

I think with kids, it is nice to encourage them to make their own things and decide on the colors, the style and all these things as it helps them pay attention to details and be more creative.

If you would also like to try making your own mermaid tail, you can leave us a message here.

Sewing Details:

  • Waistband is garterized with a 2cm waist band
  • The upper skirt part is made of 2 layers of sequins
  • Lower portion is made of organza
