About This Class
In this class, you'll learn how to measure out pattern pieces, sew a very basic zipper, and sew a bag lining. Use your zippered pouch to hold your stuff; paintbrushes, makeup, pencils, dog treats, people treats, anything!
1/4-1/3 yard of main fabric in a mid weight (calico, quilting cotton, bottom weight twill, canvas, light denim)
1/4-1/3 yard of lining fabric (use a cotton and not a polyester garment lining as it will be easier to sew)
Thread to match your main fabric
Basic tools: pins, zipper, sewing machine
A couple of my shots at the sewing machine are shaky! I am so sorry about that in advance. While you guys are learning sewing, I'm learning filming. Let's learn together!

Well hey there! My name is Miranda and I teach sewing classes here on Skillshare. I've been sewing for almost 20 years, have degrees in Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising and been a freelance seamstress/designer/tailor for almost 8 years making everything from prom dresses to swim wear to cowboy vests. I also have a day job as a graphic designer and I love to paint, cook, watch comic book TV shows and hang out with my dog.
I think sewing is an incredible skill that everyone should have even if all you do is replace buttons and hem pants. Those things are important. When you take my classes, you'll learn basic skills to transfer to other sewing projects and I'll throw in a few industry tips to make your sewing life easier. Enjoy!
