In this 3 hour class you’ll make your own lined, zippered pouch approximately 8" long, which can be used for storing anything from everyday tools to makeup (or both!). Through this process you will learn how to install zippers, attach lining as well as thread and safely operate a sewing machine, make buttonholes, and sew buttons. 

All material provided. If participants have specific fabric they would like to use to make their pouch, please feel welcome to bring it. Fabric should be two (2) 10" cotton squares.

No experience necessary, this class is an introduction to the basics of sewing as well as a handful of skills that will be useful in many future projects.
