Class requirements for Collette Sewing Bag

Sewing Companion Bag

Class requirements

You will need a sewing machine for this class and cutting equipment.


When I designed the sewing companion bag I chose the spot design linen in Burgundy with beige spots for the other bag and pocket borders, for the lining I used the beige with burgundy spots lining. The pocket lining and ties I used Osnaburg, the centre blocks of the pockets I used sections from one of the printed panels. You could use the 9 patch blocks or fussy cut sections from a favourite fabric. I will bring some other options to show on the day.


Outer bag and pocket borders                            70cm

Lining                                                                  60cm

Pocket lining and ties                                           50cm

Panel or blocks for centre of pockets - Do make sure it is a fabric that can be fussy cut or that it is a pre-printed panel. There won't be time in class to piece or applique that section of the bag. Thank you.
