Beginning Sewing - Tote Bag
Who doesn't love a Tote Bag?? Instruction includes use of a rotary cutter (no students under 18), boxed corners, seam allowances, and use of a decorative machine stitch. Basic knowledge of threading and use of your sewing machine is required. If you are new to your machine, please schedule a one hour lesson, prior to this class, with a teacher at Montavilla Sewing Centers (this lesson is free if you have purchased your machine at MSC, otherwise it is $45 per lesson).
- Sewing machine in good working order, including cords and foot control, accessories including bobbins, and extra needles
- Fabric: quilting cotton 45" wide, 3/4 yd. each of a print and a matching solid fabric. Pre-wash and dry your fabrics.
- Thread to match the solid colored fabric and thread in a contrasting color (or just bring one spool of black and one spool of white thread) and have a bobbin wound in each thread color
- Pins, ball head or flower head preferred
- Seam ripper
