This is another fun pattern by Michelle Dorsey from SewMichelle.com that is quite nice and appropriate for a day at the beach!  All of Michelle’s patterns are well thought out and contain great pictures and instructions.  If you are looking for an easy project using some of that really fun and colorful pet screen you see everywhere, this is it!  This screen bag is somewhat different from others we have made because it has a drawstring top.  And, the pattern leaves a nice area of screen showing in the center of the bag to add some embroidery if you wish. Embroidering on screen is a lot of fun and not difficult at all if you have never tried it!  The size of this tote is approximately 9” wide, 16” tall and 6” deep.  We will have this pattern here in the store for you to purchase for $12.95.  Below, you will see a list of materials and the cutting that is required for class.  If you complete the cutting prep before class, you will easily complete the tote!  This will be a one day class so the cost is $10.  Get out your swimsuit, a nice cold beverage and fire up that sewing machine!  Come on down and join us for class!
