In this class, learn the techniques needed to make a bag from start to finish by using the Everyday Essentials pattern book by Noodlehead.  First, you will start by learning to make a boxed bottom through sewing a simple tote, then sew a zipper with a cosmetic pouch pattern. Finish the class with an everyday wallet project, where you will learn to install snap hardware and create pockets.

Becky Pellerin signed up for a CSM bag making class four years ago and was hooked!  After sewing the Wax and Wool Tote, the Petal Pouch, and the Minimalist Wallet from Anna Graham (aka Noodlehead) under Lexi’s guidance, she started experimenting with other designs and opened her own Etsy shop, Mystic Makers Co, in 2019. Prior to bag making, Becky was a teacher and then elementary principal for over 25 years. Becky is also an avid knitter.
