Tote Bag for New Sewists

Begin your project on January 18th 5:00-7:30,
Return on January 25th 5:00-7:00 to finish part 2.

Never sewn with a sewing machine? Maybe you have one, but aren't very comfortable with it yet? This class is a great way to get familiar with a sewing machine. The tote bag is very forgiving, so it makes a great first project. 

In this class, you will learn: 
  • Threading your machine (if you don't have one, don't worry. We have plenty to choose from!)
  • Using a rotary cutter, ruler, and mat to cut fabric
  • Seam allowances
  • Pressing
  • Basic application of sewing with a machine
  • How to make a lined tote bag

No materials are needed for this class, as everything is included, but if you have your own:
  • Fabric (Nothing stretchy or slippery. If you aren't sure, we have plenty!)
  • Rotary cutter
  • Cutting ruler
  • Cutting mat
  • Sewing machine in good working order with a fresh needle
  • Thread
  • Pressing mat and iron
  • Fabric scissors
  • Hand-sewing needles
  • Any other standard notions such as straight pins, stitch ripper, etc.
