Sew a Reversible Tote Bag.

  • Stone Cow Brewery 500 B West Street Barre, MA 01005 USA (map)

SEW A TOTE BAG is perfect for beginners & people who have sewn in the past but need a refresher, where they will learn how to competently use a sewing machine and complete a lined tote bag!

Here’s what we’ll cover:
*Basic intro/refresher to a sewing machine, including how to sew a straight seam
*How to create a pattern for a tote bag
*Pinning and sewing
*How to attaching straps
*How to attach and sew linings
*How to sew corners
*Topstitching

Participants will leave class with a finished tote bag, as well as a printout (cheat sheet) of basic sewing terminology, techniques, and troubleshooting.

Participants will also take home notes and drawings of the dimensions and layout of their tote bag, so they can re create this pattern at home and make limitless tote bags on their own.

*IMPORTANT NOTE* Please bring a working sewing machine to class, and have a basic knowledge of the functionality. Being rusty is just fine!
