The Carolina Bag

The Carolina Bag is a real eye catcher to make in two different sizes!  Use it to carry your handwork, lunch or a book and a snack wherever you travel. It’s roomy interior plus 6 to 8 interior pockets will keep you organized.  This intermediate level bag will attract attention no matter where you use it.  Fabulous in batiks!

This class will teach bag construction techniques which can be used when constructing other bags.  Tips and tricks for fusing, managing seams and overall good bag construction techniques which will help make your bag last and withstand heavy use.  You will learn to work with equilateral triangles, manage bias, insert a magnetic closure and some nice topstitching that will give your bag a more polished look.

The bag sides are constructed using 2 ½” strips.  The triangles are also cut from 2 ½” strips so a jelly roll works great or cut your own strips from a medley of fabrics to create interest. See the samples in the shop.

Large Bag:  15” x 13” x 5”       Small Bag:  12” x 11” x 5”
