Class Description

This project is based on a SweetPea design (required purchase, included in class cost). 

It is a beautiful beach design for you to appliqué and embroider on the bag, as well as a side pockets and an embroidered top border.  

This design is an ITH (In The Hoop) machine embroidery design.  The side and top borders as well as the lining are added with your sewing machine.  

The design comes in two sizes - the 6x10 and 7x12 hoops.  Both sizes are included in your purchase . The bag is completely lined and has no raw seams. You may do either (but not both) size for this class.

Finished bag sizes are:

6x10 - 19cm h x 38cm w (7.5” x 15”) or 7x12 - 20cm h x 43cm w (8” x 17”)

This project is being divided into two classes.  In the first class you will make the front embroidery panel.  The second (optional) class will deal with the assembly and completion of the actual bag.  The embroidery designs and instructions will be handed out with the first class.
