Bag up some fun in this beginning sewing class where students use a sewing machine to make four different types of fabric bags.
The first class covers sewing machine basics, and students make a simple, reusable fabric bag with a ribbon closure suitable for gift-giving or holding treasures.
In the second class, students sew a lined drawstring bag. The final class includes making a lined, zippered, cross-body bag, with an optional project of a lined, zippered, ear-bud pouch. Students can choose from pre-cut fabric kits for all projects.
Clothing and Textile Advisors (CTA) is donating all materials: fabric, zippers, thread, ribbon, etc.
