Making Bags Book Club Month 2: Quilted Pouches

Whether your customers are just starting their sewing journey, or are seasoned bag makers, our Making Bags Book Club is a great way to build their confidence in bag making. During this six-part club series, they'll learn the foundational knowledge of bag making, explore new materials, techniques, and make 5 skill-building projects. This stylish project is the perfect place for beginners to start. It’s a modern take on a classic quilted zipper pouch using soft faux leather and minimalist quilting. During this month’s class, participants will build skills in fabric preparation, learn zipper installation, bag assembly and how to add optional embellishments.
