Sewing Project for Handwoven Fabric


In this two-part class, we'll explore how to stabilize, cut, and sew hand-woven fabric and how to use a pattern to create a three-dimensional object. The final project is a free-standing lined bag with an oval base, outer pocket, and self-fabric handle with a wooden ring closure which can be painted to coordinate with your fabric. Please note: A portable sewing machine is needed for this class, and beginner to intermediate sewing skills are required.
