Registrations are closed for this event

Join our guest teacher Lauri in the classroom to make this bag that will become a must have for carrying your supplies to class. She has lots of tips and tricks to take the mystery out of the construction of this bag. This bag is a way for you to show of your style and personalize a bag to fit your needs. finished size 14” long x 13” high x 3” deep.

Block Bag Pattern
3/4 yard of Exterior Fabric
1 yard of Lining Fabric
1/2 yard of foam interfacing (Bosal In-R-Form)
2 yards of 20” wide Pellon SF-101 Shape Flex fusible woven interfacing (or medium-weight fusible interfacing)
1-1/2 yard of Pellon #71 Peltex fusible ultra-firm interfacing
40” handbag zipper (if using a zipper roll, you’ll need 40-1/2”) – a parka zipper will also work
9” all-purpose/dress zipper
14” all-purpose/dress zipper
14-1/2” x 5” piece of mesh (37cm x 13cm)
1/2 yard of 1/4” wide elastic
1 yard of 1” wide elastic (I prefer fold-over elastic, no-roll will also work)
Plastic side-release/parachute buckle (it should be able to accomodate 1” wide strap)
Sewing Machine and Basic Sewing Supplies
Rotary Cutter and Rulers (mats are available for classroom use.)

Helpful Things to note:

A stiletto and wonder clips are very helpful.
Using longer than required zippers or zipper tape for the interior pockets make assembly easier.
Dry iron for application of the Shape Flex is recommended to avoid shrinkage.
Do attach the interfacing before class. Do not attach any Peltex prior to class.
Do not pre-cut the 1/4 inch elastic to size.
Optional: if you want a quilted bag, please cut the exterior pieces oversize, quilt your pattern and then cut to stated pattern size before class.
Pack a lunch!

Please join us for cookies and cutting to get your supplies cut out for this class.
