July 2019 Project Bag Class | MO

Make handy totes with sturdy quilted bases and fun fabric details.

They are great for organizing everything you need for each of your projects!

In this class you will learn how to insert a zippered closure that keeps everything safe and secure, and how to sew in a see-through vinyl window that allows you to see at a glance what is in each bag. These bags are quick and easy to make--great for gifts for the holidays!

Please note: We will be making only ONE bag in class. Please do not choose the smallest bag, as you will not have the opportunity to practice all techniques in this class.
