Ever wanted to learn how to design and create your very own handbags, totes & purses? This class will show you how. You'll learn all the design & sewing secrets behind making your own bags with all the pockets, zippers & straps you can dream up!

We'll be making a zippered clutch/cosmetic bag, reversible shopper tote & a backpack.  Please note: The number of projects you complete in the class will depend on how much experience you come to class with, how much work you do at home and in Sew Club & the pace that you work.

All supplies are included in the price of the class.

In this 3 week workshop you'll learn the following:

  • How to construct the bag exterior & lining using different shape variations.
  • How to work with different materials including interfacings, different weights of bag making fabrics, even some faux leather & faux suede.
  • How to add pockets (zippered, open, flaps, etc) where you want them.
  • Techniques for different types of closures (zippers, snaps, buttons, velcro, etc.)
  • Adding straps & handles.
