Beginner Sewing (Fabric/Materials Included)



Learn the basics of sewing as you create this sleek, slim bag - perfect for tucking in your laptop or tablet when you're on the go.

All fabrics and materials are included in the cost of this one-time, two-hour class.

You do not need to own a sewing machine to take this introductory class.

For the back pocket, you can choose to create a large patch pocket that's large enough to fit a tablet, or you could use a back pocket from one of the many pairs of jeans we keep on hand to repurpose in sewing projects. Three handle options include ready-made leather strips, recycled denim, or cotton belting. 

Finished bag will fit most laptops. Dimensions of finished bag are 14 inches wide by 11 inches high, excluding handles.

Class cost includes pattern: "Sleek Stash Bag" (A Tonie Roper Design) by Indygo Junction (by Amy Barickman). Materials List below taken directly from pattern description.
