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 assistance, Rose will be happy to help you at one of our many Open Sewing opportunities.  

The beach bag is not 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 $35.  Class Kits have a built-in discount and additional kits (pattern not included) will be available for purchase at $35.00 on the day of class only.  These are pre-made class kits and the fabric and notions may not be substituted.
