Christine Chenier from Saint Flamingo is bringing her popular messenger bag workshop to Levigator Press!
In this class you will create a messenger-style bag that’s great for all ages and genders. You will receive a pattern and be led through the process to create a trendy bag that you can use to replace your purse or use for books, laptop, diaper bag, etc. We will cover beginning sewing skills such as creating a lining, adding pockets, and making an adjustable strap. You will also be able to customize the bag to fit your needs by choosing the fabric, changing the size, and adding or changing the size of the pockets.
This class runs for two weeks, Tuesday nights September 22 and 29, from 7-10pm. You will leave the class with a finished bag.
