The Ultimate Travel Bag

The Ultimate Travel Bag class was first presented in early November on a weekday. At the time, several people asked for a class on a weekend which we have scheduled now for Saturday, April 4, from 9 - 4. We will break for lunch.  

Before class, following the pattern, begin cutting and sewing  your project through directions 1 and 2.  We will begin with direction 3 at class.

Finish edges with a zig zag stitch that is within the 1/4" seam allowance for all pieces.

Copy and use the last page of the pattern pinning each label to the correct pattern piece.  You will be happy you did before it's over!
