I'm so excited to share with you my Craftsy class Colorful Patchwork Bags and Baskets... it's finally out!
Last fall I bought a bolt of gridded interfacing from Amazon and discovered a whole new way to sew patchwork. And the most amazing thing that I found was that all my pattern ideas were immediately scalable - every project could be big or small depending on what size squares I started with.
And just so you know, if you can't get gridded interfacing, I figured out a way to make it yourself (DIY style), which I included in the class.
Plus, when you fuse your squares to the gridded interfacing before you sew them, it's easy to sew everything perfectly straight and perfectly quick!
I know I packed a lot into this class... There are over 2 hours of instruction!
The baskets are easy and fun, but I wanted to share more than that. These tote bags are fabulous - can you see the pockets on the exterior? When I realized that smaller versions of the tote bag could be easily altered to make zipper pouches, I had to add that in too!
Every project is perfectly suited to using precuts and scraps too - yay!
Now that I've seen it, I am completely delighted with the wonderful job that Craftsy did with my class. They helped make everything that I wanted to teach come across in a friendly and clear manner. I could not have asked for more support or more talented people to work with. I am so proud of how it turned out!
I want to know what you think too!
