In this intermediate sewing class, you learn how to make your own multi use bag that can be a dop kit, bento lunch bag, art supply bag, where you keep your hedgehog...it's got a lot of uses. Pretty sweet ass bag.

For your bag, we will use high quality thick cotton, duck cloth or denim and you are welcome to choose your own, we have alot of options. You will learn how to install a zipper, focus on top stitching and more decorative visible stitching. You also will learn about customizing with add ons to a pattern using tabs, handles and gusseting. This is a great class if you have taken a Sewing 101 with us, a botcamp or know how to sew but want to learn a bit more and make more projects.

Pre-requisite: You must know how to use a sewing machine and sew straight stitches. So you dont have to be great but know enough to navigate your machine.

Teacher Bio: Maeve learned how to sew outfits for her stuffed bunnies when she was three and hasn't stopped sewing since. She recently studied pattern making and thinks clothes should be made to fit your body, not your body altered to fit standard sized clothes. Her favorite thing to make is something new. When Maeve's not sewing she's making terrariums that she slowly watches die or doing science experiments in the kitchen.

Class includes all supplies and fabrics.
