Sewing for Total Beginners: Make A Tote Bag

San Francisco, CA , United States

About Your Host

I created You're Crafty! Craft and DIY classes because I love making things and I want you to love making things, too. I'm a lifelong crafter. My areas of specialty include knitting, crochet, sewing, cross stitch, and making costumes. I offer a variety of small, intimate classes for all experience and skill levels. You'll have fun and meet new friends while challenging yourself to learn something new. When I'm not making stuff or teaching others how to make stuff, I'm walking/running in the Berkeley hills (walking up the hills, running down them), snuggling with my cats, and performing with Bay Area Flash Mob (often as a zombie). See you in class! Let's craft together!

What we'll do

This class is perfect for absolute beginners, but it also makes a great second project for advanced beginners! All welcome: If you've never sewn before, this class will introduce you to machine sewing! You'll learn all the basics, from the parts of a sewing machine to using a pattern. If you’ve learned some basic sewing skills and would like to practice them, or if you haven’t sewn in a long time and need a refresher, this class is a great way to review your basic sewing skills while making a fun new project. Your creation: This cute, lined tote will hold your books, your laptop, or your groceries with DIY flair! In this small class, you’ll get plenty of individual attention from your instructor. You’ll take home a finished lined tote bag that you'll use for years! What you get: Three-hour beginning sewing class with personal instruction. Fabric and matching thread. Pattern. Tutorial handout packet. Use of sewing machine, scissors, pins, bobbin, cutting table, iron and ironing board, and other tools.
