Sewing Level 2: Construction Introduction - Drawstring Bag

In this follow-up class to Sewing Level 1, students will learn to follow step-by-step instructions to create a drawstring bag. Learn why we sew everything inside out & backwards, how to tell the right side & wrong side of fabrics, and how to sew a drawstring casing. Even if you haven't touched a sewing machine since your Sewing Level 1 class, this session is for you! 

Our goal with these classes is to help you work up to projects such as bag making, quilting, or garment sewing, that maybe have you a little intimidated right now. The best way to grow your skills is to practice, make mistakes, and try again! We design our classes to be low-key and low-stakes, so you can learn with as little stress as possible. Because above all, we think crafting should be fun!

This class is open to students age 14+.

Supplies Provided:

  • Sewing machine, thread, scrap fabric, and a sewing toolkit for use in class.

Supplies Needed:
  • Students need to bring one fat quarter to class. We do have some in store available just be sure to arrive early to purchase!
