We started a series of programs we call “Sew-Alongs.” What is a Sew-Along? It is kind of like a sewing bee where a group of sewing enthusiasts get together and work on the same kind of project.
The Fiber Arts Studio 'Sewing Programming Committee' selected some popular patterns and projects. People who want to participate will purchase their own pattern, fabric, and notions required to make the fabric bag. Then, we will meet and work together to make the chosen garment.
Please note: This is not a class with a formal instructor, but rather a gathering of folks interested in sewing together.
Skill Level Required: You should be able to use a pattern to cut fabric and follow written directions from the pattern maker.
In March we will make the SEW TOGETHER BAG pattern by SewDemented -- a fantastic zippered notions pouch.
The bag features three zippered pockets, four open pockets, and a spot for hand sewing needles and a small pincushion. The bag is closed with one long zipper that forms two handles. This bag will easily hold your 8" scissors, rotary cutter, marking pencils, seam ripper, extra needles, thread, snippers, and much more. You will be amazed by you how much you can hold in this fun and compact bag.
Student Supply List:
The pattern is available at the Bluprint website:
Esther’s Fabrics in Winslow has all of the fabric and notions you need to make this bag.
Check the pattern for appropriate fabrics and yardage needed.
- Skill Level: Advanced Beginner. Participants should have experience with using a pattern to make clothes and/or sewing projects following directions by the manufacturer for the pattern.
