The Savannah Crossbody Bag, Saturday, September 28, 10-1pm

75.00

This three-hour workshop will get you going on your sewing journey.  You will learn the anatomy of a sewing machine, the most useful stitches, functions and attachments.  We will spend some time learning to sew both straight and curvy lines before delving into our project- the Savannah Crossbody Bag. Of all of the projects in my book, the Savannah Crossbody Bag is one that is packed with skill-building opportunities.

SKILLS YOU WILL LEARN

  • Fabric Weight

  • Sewing Machine Needles

  • Interfacing

  • Intersecting Seams

  • Understitching

  • Topstitching

  • Creating a Pleat

  • Making a Facing

  • Lining a bag

  • Fabric ease

  • Sewing a curved seam

  • Making a strap- either fixed in length or adjustable

  • Using bag making hardware

While the design is simple, the construction is very much like that of much a garment. Not only will you leave with a great new bag, but you will have the confidence to begin that next-level project.

1/2 yard of fabric each for the main body and lining

Copy of my book: Sew Bags: The Practical Guide to Making Purses, Totes, Clutches & More; 13 Skill-Building Projects

Recommended Fabrics: quilting cotton, canvas, flannel, wool and linen. I have several suitable fabrics available for purchase in my shop as well.

A sewing machine, coordinating thread, fabric shears, pins, marking tools, measuring tools, iron, hardware and interfacing.
