March Member Led Workshop

Not Your Basic Blue Bag

We are excited to host Janet for our member led workshop: Not Your Basic Blue Bag

Not Your Basic Blue BagWe’ve all been there. The big blue and yellow home store that has those huge blue bags at their register that you can purchase to carry all your treasures home. We love it’s size. We love it’s practicality. But we’ve always been a fan of beautiful things that function. The Not Your Basic Blue Bag is an alternative bag that delivers all the practicality of the original but all the style of a one of a kind bag. A quick and easy sew, it also offers three sizes for when you don’t necessarily need a HUGE bag but you still want to carry your treasures in style.  This bag is a great “gateway” bag in that it includes a few basic bag making skills. You get to choose the size. Pattern is included in the cost of the class
