bag series: briar bag

Why settle for a boring bag?  Just by adding a simple bow, we've transformed a simple zipper pouch into a must-have accessory!

The Briar Bag was released by our in-house pattern brand, Studio M Squared, last Spring and we're bringing it back to you as a class this Summer!  The added foam stabilizer gives the Briar Bag lots of structure, make it possible to carry as clutch.  Perfect as an evening bag, cosmetic bag, or all-purpose pouch - this clutch makes a great gift!  Just choose two fabrics, a coordinating zipper and some interfacing and stabilizer and you're on your way to making this cute bag that will impress all your friends!

This 2.5-hour class is suitable for intermediate students that have prior experience sewing with zippers. Students must be able to confidently thread and operate a sewing machine independently.
