Sunday September 17th and 24th, 2:00 – 6:00pmWeekly on Sunday, 2 times
Join us over two consecutive weekends and sew your own version of the Bestie Bag by BF Patterns: a cute, banana-shaped carryall!
This trendy yet practical bag pattern offers two sizes to sew from: medium for everyday use, and large for those days when you have more on the go. From there, makers can choose from two different body styles (flat vs. pleated), and three adjustable strap options (pre-made OR self-made straps with a slider, or self-made straps that knot at the shoulder).
Whatever size and style you choose, our workshop will walk you through the entire bag-making process from start to finish, covering basics like tracing a pattern and cutting fabric, to inserting a zipper, sewing a lining, topstitching and more!
Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. Students must feel confident threading a sewing machine and sewing straight seams independently to register for this workshop.
Max number of participants: 5
Length: Two four hour sessions (eight hours total)
