March 13, 2018 – Kristi’s Bag Makers: Mega Bow Tucks Tote Bag
Join Kristi and your fellow bag makers for an evening of sewing a fun tote bag. Homework will be required in that you should have you bag cut out and interfacing applied prior to the class. Kristi uses SF 101 interfacing on essentially every bag piece, including the lining. This is usually IN ADDITION to fusible fleece or soft and stable.
Kristi will provide an overview of the pattern and her tips and tricks for making the bag. We will then spend the rest of the evening sewing. Feel free to prepare pieces you feel comfortable preparing (handles, pockets, etc.). Each month the focus will be on a new technique.
This month, we will be creating the Mega Bow Tucks Bag (Pattern by Quilt Illustrated). You will have the option of creating the Matching Wallet pattern if you wish) or creating that instead of the Bow Tuck’s Bag if you wish. We will cover both in class.
This is a generous sized tote bag. This month the techniques we will focus on is the use of swivel hardware and how to install and use turn closure locks.
Quilter’s Haven will have the Mega Bow Tucks Tote and Wallet Patterns – please purchase when you register and pay for the class. You will need the materials listed on the pattern. You will also need pattern trace if you do not wish to cut apart your pattern. Quilter’s Haven has all of the hardware you will need for these bags. I also added bag feet to my bag so if this is something you would like, you should purchase those as well.
Prior to class, you should cut your tote and/or wallet pieces out and and fuse SF101 to each of your pieces.
So – Come Join Kristi and have fun with your fellow Bag Makers doing what we love to do – MAKE BAGS!!!
