Well, I am soooo happy to say that it was a hit and great fun. It was the first sewing class taught in the new classroom of my local sewing shop. There were a few equipment hiccups - like no power extension cord or power boards or jug to fill the iron!! However, thanks to the lovely student, Lyn (who had packed these sewing essentials!) we got started.
To celebrate the success of this, my first class, I have decided to make the pdf pattern free to all who may decide to give it a try.
I have listed this bag as a free pattern in my Craftsy store. If you have an account with Craftsy simply click on the photo and you will go straight to the pattern. If you don't have an account it is very easy and free to sign up. You can then download the free pdf pattern.
The bag is very easy to make and the pattern (like all my patterns) is supported by photographs for each step of production. This pattern can be simply modified to give it many and individual looks - just change the trim, add panels of colour in different places or add a button or zip. However, I think the fabric makes the bag!
Thank you to my lovely students, Lyn and Bev, who allowed me to share some action shots with you.
Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
