Patchwork Duffle Mini.SATX

 This class will teach you to make a beautiful duffle style bag for yourself or someone else. These beautiful bags can be used to hold all kinds of items. It also contains 2 outside pockets. It's great as over overnight bag for anyone of any age, especially kids and young adults. Your fabric makes the personality of the bag and a GREAT way to use up your scrap fabric. Don't let the word "mini" fool you! This bag is still a very good size!

Fabric selection prior to class is encouraged so you have time to go home with a completed project. Class 1 provides time to choose quilt sandwich ideas and piecing. The Sew Special staff would be happy to assist in selecting fabric and obtaining supplies. As always, tips and tricks are offered during both classes. This is not a beginner class, but some bag making experience is HIGHLY recommended.

Three versions of this bag is being offered with 2 classes: 
(approximate finished size 10" High x 17.5" Wide x 8.5" Deep)

Class 1 will cover bag choices for quilting and cutting your body, side panels, pockets, bindings and handle. Improv Piecing Quilt as You Go (QAYG) option will be taught for those wanting to use scraps or any leftover precuts laying around.

Class 2 will cover attachment of bindings, handle, zipper and side panels. By end of class you may get to take home a completed duffle bag!

- Knot + Thread Patchwork Duffle Mini pattern purchased at Sew Special Quilts
- Fabric for Duffle:

              - 1 Yard Main fabric

              - 12 Fat 1/8ths to make (112) squares and (28) rectangles
                 (most time consuming unless pre-cut outside of class)

               - QAYG scrap squares, rectangles and strips to cover 36" x 44" area (more if you also want to QAYG                       your side panel and pockets, I just used (2) Fat 1/8ths for my sides) QAYG is a fun technique and will                     be taught in class 1 for those wanting to that technique. It's what I used to make my class sample.

- 1 yard lining fabric
- 1/2 yard fabric for exterior binding and handle (exterior binding does not need to be cut on bias)
- 1 FQ fabric for interior single fold bias binding (approx 90" bias needed just for interior)
- 1 yard By Annie's Soft n Stable for stability or Your favorite sturdy batting
- 1 30" size Double-Slide Handbag Zipper
- 3 1/4 Yards of 1" or 1.50" strapping/webbing (I preferred making a 1" size wide strap)
- 10" x 1.25" Soft n Stable or batting for zipper tabs (since final layers are very thick and can be challenging to sew through)

Sewing Machine, scissors, pins, fabric marker, neutral or fabric matching thread
If planning on sewing QAYG technique, bring small iron and iron mat (to cut waiting time)
