Making a Snap Out of Sewing with Measuring Tapes

Sew a small mesh box and snap bag using a metal measuring tape as the stabilizer and closure. 

We will be sewing a small mesh box and snap bag using a metal measuring tape as the stabilizer and closure.

Not only will you go home with fabric box and coin purse suitable for a gifts, we will also discuss how you can use measuring tapes in other projects.

Class Level: Fascination
These classes 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. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.
