Bags & Totes, Oh my!

Every few months I have the pleasure of teaching a full day sewing workshop to a great group of creatives in New York. “Bags & Totes” was the theme for our session yesterday. The gals were interested in learning how to make lined bags and totes with zippers and pockets. For this workshop, I prepared kits that included some necessary and fun notions as well as a plethora of notes and step by step directions as support materials for their at home use.

Cheryl worked on a raw edge demin tote that featured patches and pockets from her son’s childhood clothing, how on trend and yet personal …what a keepsake! She was thrilled with the finished piece!

Using her gorgeous hand printed fabrics, Brenna made two lined zipper pouches to hold her art supplies! Funky and functional, go Brenna!

Eileen used coordinating fabrics for the outside pocket for her lined zipped bag! She went right at it and finished it in a wink! Looking good!

And Cheryl’s beloved Bentley is always a charming host!

Great job ladies! I’m so proud of all your hard work and creative efforts!

Looking forward to our next workshop!
