Here are two projects easy enough for kids to try but equally satisfying for accomplished sewists. In this free class, Kristin Link of Sew, Mama, Sew! will guide you step-by-step through the creation of two super-handy and pretty bags that you can embellish with embroidery, rubber-stamping and more.
With the drawstring bag, you'll learn clever tips for making and threading drawstrings that close your bag snugly. With the round-bottom bucket bag, you'll learn how to make a divided exterior pocket, plus learn how to reinforce your bag with fusible fleece interfacing. Both bags make great carriers for toys or crafting projects and can be customized to any size.
Kristin demonstrates her techniques using a line of quilting cotton from Liberty of London that is available as a Craftsy kit, but you can also raid your stash for fun fabrics to mix and match.
