bag series: the parkview project bag

Do you ever wish your tote or project bag would just open up more so you can access everything that’s down in the bottom of it?   The Parkview Project Bag is a totally unique bag designed to do just that!

Designed by our in-house brand, Studio M Squared, the Parkview's split sides allow the top of the bag to open wider than a regular tote, and even fold down completely, converting the bag to a basket of sorts!  Once folded, you can much more easily find what you need in the pockets and in the bottom of the bag. The Parkview comes in two sizes - both are great for knitting or craft projects; the large bag is also perfect for the pool or beach. The approximate finished dimensions are:
- small size: 15" wide at top, 10" wide at bottom, 13" tall, 5" deep
- large size: 19" wide at top, 12.5" wide at bottom, 16" tall, 7 deep

This 2-day class is suitable for our intermediate students. Prior bag making experience is recommended, but not required. Students should be able to confidently operate + thread their sewing machine independently. Students will start off the first class with a cutting session, leaving the remainder of the first class and entirety of the second class for bag construction.
