The All Season Tote is the perfect project to learn basic bag making skills. You will gain understanding of the anatomy of a bag, which gives you a great jumping off point for variations in size and details. You will learn how to box the corners of a bag, add handles and pockets, and incorporate lining and stabilizer. You will make a roomy two-handled, lined tote bag with pockets, perfect for a picnic, a day trip, or even a sewing machine tote!
Students must be comfortable using a sewing machine.
Be sure to purchase your fabric and other supplies from Silk Road Textiles!
