You've Got Zippers in the Bag!
This class is for anyone that can sew a straight seam. Zippers often intimidate sewers. This class will introduce zipper installation in craft projects which is much easier than clothing. If you do not have a sewing machine, one will be provided.* If you have a sewing machine and you know how to fill your own bobbin, set the tension and thread your machine, you may bring your own. Three bags will be completed during this course.
The first is a box bag with an exposed zipper and secured ends. When complete, it measures approximately 9” L x 4” H x 4” W. It is made with double sided, pre-quilted fabric so no lining required. This bag is perfect for toys, pencils, sewing supplies, etc.
The second is a tote bag with a set-in zipper and lining Finished, it measures approximately 20” x 20”. One sided, pre-quilted fabric will be used for the outside and the lining can be any coordinating fabric. This bag has boxed corners making it great for taking shopping, to the gym or sewing class.
Last, is a retreat bag featuring an exposed zipper with tabs that extend beyond both sides of the bag. This enables the bag a wide opening for easy access to the contents. Finished size is approximately 8 1/2'” L x 5” H x 4”W. Two layers of fabric with interfacing in the middle affords stability enabling the bag to stand tall. This would be an awesome cosmetic bag!
*A limited number of sewing machines are available and will be on a first come-first served basis. Please let us know in the comments at checkout if you will be using one of our machines.
