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!

Supplies needed:

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

12inch zipper

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!
