Yesterdays class focused on completing the zippered lining. WHAT A PAIN! I will need to practice zippers if I ever have to do one again. I finished the bag and attached the lining at home. I like this bag and the size is good for me. If I do it again I may do the medium bag and add pockets to the lining. I might skip the zipper not only because it was a pain but because this bag doesn’t need one.
I still feel like they rush you thru the class and don’t seem focused on teaching. Just finishing. I did learn a few very basic sewing techniques that I might never have picked up on my own. There were questions I would have asked but I felt like they didn’t want to be bothered.
22 pieces cut. Good thing I got the rotary cutter for this but I was sorry I chose to chalk mark the notches. My fabric is too dark for the washable pen but the chalk marks were hard to find after pressing. I left with a $10 chalk wheel. Homework is to finish the strap and sew the lining panels together.
Tote bag! The first time I’ve used a sewing machine since junior high!
