Sewing: Beach Bag



In this class you will learn how to construct a basic tote bag including boxed corners, sturdy straps, exterior pockets, and modified French seams. 

Time allowing, you will then construct a basic flat pouch with a front zipper and tether it to the main tote.  If time does not permit, we will provide you with verbal and written instructions so that you can finish the pouch at home.  If you need one-on-one instruction, we will extend an invitation to you for our Sunday Sewing with Rose (free-of-charge) to assist you with completing your pouch.  

Neither the beach bag or the pouch will be lined. 

In the kit, we provide the pattern, cut-to-size pieces of all fabric, webbing, pet screen, matching thread, a zipper and ribbon for the attached pouch.  The kit will be available the day of class and the cost is $30.  All Kits have a built-in discount.  Additional kits purchased at $35.00 and do not include the pattern or the discount.
