SWEET RETREAT LITTLE SISTER



Now this is one huge tote bag! 12 pockets (6 outside, 6 inside) plus a zippered closure will hold everything you could possibly need – this is a great accessory for sewing, traveling, commuting and life in general. 

Now this is one huge tote bag! 12 pockets  (6 outside, 6 inside) plus a zippered closure will hold everything you could possibly need – this is a great accessory for sewing, traveling, commuting and life in general. Thanks to clever use of binding, all seams are covered without tricky lining sewing. Even the zipper is easy!  Mary has some ideas to make the bag even easier and sturdier than the original pattern. The first ½ day we’ll get going on all the prep work, then on the full day we’ll actually make the tote bag. Not sure what fabric to choose? Mary will help you pick fabulous fabrics during the first ½ day.

Supply list:

  •        Sweet Retreat - Little Sister pattern
  •        Fabric per the pattern EXCEPT please purchase 1 yard (not ¾ yard) for the binding. I also recommend that you buy an extra ¼ yard of the fabric for the handles to give yourself choices on fabric placement. There are so many different ways to use the fabrics. Not sure what fabric to choose? Mary will help you pick fabulous fabrics and organize your cutting during the first ½ day.
  •        Recommended fusible fleece – Pellon 987 – purchase the amount specified by the pattern
  •        Recommended interfacing – Pellon Décor Bond – please buy 3/4 yard
  •        Zipper – 18” length is best, a regular nylon coil zipper will be just fine.
  •        Thread – 50 wt sewing thread in a neutral color and 1 spool of King Tut quilting thread in a fun color that goes with your fabric (you’ll need a bobbin filled with each, too).
  •        Sewing machine with all the usual supplies, especially a quarter inch foot, a zipper foot and a walking foot if you have one.  You may also want to have a free motion quilting foot if you want to quilt the bag this way – it is totally optional, no free motion required! I recommend having both a size 80 and a size 90 needle.
  •        Rotary cutter & quilter’s ruler – bring the longest one you have.
  •        Pins – I recommend bring long flexible pins such as the ones with flowers, butterflies or buttons as heads.
  •        Marking pencils – bring one that will mark on dark fabrics & one that will mark on light fabric.
  •        All your favorite sewing notions such as scissors, tweezers, seam ripper, and an applique pressing sheet (if you have one).

 

Note: Because this is a full day class, there will be a break for lunch. You may bring your own lunch or we will place an order from the Lyons Dairy Bar (they have great sandwiches!). Please bring cash if you would like us to order for you.
