Beginner Sewing: Purl Project Bag

Project bags are perfect for organizing supplies for your current craft obsession. They are popular for knitting and crochet projects, but the multitude of pockets and compact size make them useful for many craft endeavors (& travel!).
Instructor Crystal will take you through the process of cutting and assembling this lined bag with multiple pockets and a drawstring closure. This class is great for students with little or no sewing experience, and also those who like to sew projects in the company of other crafters :)

This class is open to ages 14+.
