Join Andrea and your fellow sewing club friends, Tuesday, June 30 at 9 a.m. MT to learn how to install a recessed zipper top closure in a basic two handle tote bag.
Andrea stitched up the tote shown using four 18" squares of fabric with 2.5" corners notched at the base of each panel. The straps are crafted from 6" x 30" strips of material + a 3" channel of batting as demonstrated last week in our Removable Messenger Strap - Sewing Skill Share.
She will be using an 18" purse zipper and two panels of twill fabric which measure 8" x 20" to craft a fabric frame that will house the zipper.
We hope to see you then; but, if you miss out you can always watch the replay of this or any other live sewing club event here on our "on demand" page.
Whether you are a sewing novice or an expert in your craft, the sewing club offers you an opportunity to make new friends, expand your skills and share your passion for the art of sewing in a supportive virtual environment.
Largely self-taught, Andrea has been sewing full-time as a hobby and profession since 2006. She especially enjoys teaching, pattern design, sewing bags and accessories. It is her belief that creativity is an essential element of well-being and sewing is a practical and enjoyable way to express your creativity, connect with other artistic people and build lasting friendships.
