Bagitall presented by Textiles West at Textiles West, Colorado Springs CO

Learn how to make this ‘Bagitall’- a roomy, sturdy bag with a very comfortable handle.

The instructor for this class is Catherine Carr.

Part of Textiles West’s vision for responsible creativity is recycling. Avoiding the use of plastic bags in the first place simplifies things from the get-go.

This ‘Bagitall’ is a roomy, sturdy bag with a very comfortable handle. Stash your grocery store ID card inside and roll it up on the front seat to grab as you get out of your car.

It’s large enough for a gallon of milk, a box of cereal, eggs, and some fruit. You will have your own copy of the pattern to take home and reuse!

This class will provide instruction and/or refinement in the skills of: ‘reading’ a pattern; dealing with heavy, loosely woven fabrics; creating a reinforced seam; better knowledge of your machine’s utility stitches, use of pressing to improve outcome and make other steps easier.

You will have a pattern to take home to make more bagitalls

Student supply list:

  • Fabric amount: bring 2 fabrics, a solid and a print. Wash and iron the fabric before class.
  • Fabric type: Cotton (quilting or medium weight) or light weight home decor fabric

This class will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class.
