bag camp: summer camp for adults and teens

Join us for a fun filled week this summer making these three fabulous studio m2 bags: 

- Market tote bag 
- Zipper pouch 
- Crossway convertible bag 

This camp is perfect for a beginner sewists who have completed sewing 101.
We will start with the basic market tote bag. This stylish fully lined boxed bottom bag is super handy for a shopping trip and the perfect first bag project. You will then move on to learn how to insert a zipper by making a flat zipper pouch and towards the end of the week make the Crossway convertible bag.

Crossway is a clever, modern bag that does it all.  You can carry it with both straps slung over your shoulder or as a backpack.  Or just grab the small handle and go!    We designed Crossway as a knitting project bag but it’s great for so many uses, available in two sizes: the small bag is perfect for running errands or shopping, while the bigger bag is great for work or for heading to the beach or pool. 

Both sizes of the bag have a magnetic snap closure.  Small bag has three divided pockets.  Large bag has five divided pockets and a single pocket large enough for magazines or pattern instructions.
