bag series: bucket bag by noodlehead

Ready to make your new favorite bag with us? Join Erin for a 4-week evening series this August to make the Bucket Bag by Noodlehead.

The Bucket Bag is a great for everyday use. The bag features a strap that can easily go from over-the-shoulder style to crossbody.  It also has two exterior zippered pockets, making it easy to stash your phone and keys, while the roomy interior and slip pocket inside will hold all of your other essentials.  Use two coordinating fabrics to create a fun look for the exterior of the bag. The finished dimensions of the Bucket Bag are 15.5" tall, 13" wide and 9" deep.

During this 4-week class, students will learn bag construction skills, including how to sew a zippered pocket, how to install grommets and bag hardware, and how to sew a rounded bottom bag.  This class is suitable for intermediate students who have prior bag making experience.  Students must be able to confidently thread and operate a sewing machine independently.
