Handbags & Totes

Love all the fabric print handbags, but don’t want what everyone else is toting? This one night class will send you home with a fun, fabulous and functional handbag or tote of your unique design and creation. Students must have completed the Beginning I Sewing Series or have good sewing machine skills. Choose from 9 or 10 basic bag shapes (including either of the bag choices from our Fab Fabric Shopping Bags class!), which we've rated for level of difficulty. All bag patterns were designed by Stitch Lab owner, Leslie Bonnell, to be very simple to make. The pattern for your bag choice is provided in class. Check out our Handbags & Totes or the Fab Shoppers albums on Flickr for bag samples and completed student projects.

Prerequisite: Students must be at least 13 years old, and must have taken the Beginning I Sewing Series at Stitch Lab, or have the equivalent experience. Not sure? E-mail and we'll discuss!

View our Flickr set of some of our students' final class creations!

5-6 students per class
One (1) 4-hour class
$45 (optional $5 machine rental available)
