Blue Calla: Coneflower Crossbody Bag

Class Description

Join us for a full day of sewing in the Embellish classroom and make the Coneflower Crossbody Bag! This is a great, medium-sized unisex bag, perfect for carrying all your essentials – even an ipad!

It has an exterior zippered pocket on one side and a main flap closure with two magnetic snaps, concealing a hidden pocket. For the bag's interior, there are two slip pockets and one zippered pocket.

The bag can be made in a variety of fabric types: fabric, cork, vinyl or waxed canvas. You can interface your bag with fusible fleece for a softer structure or with foam for a more structured look, according to your personal preference.

Though it sounds advanced, this bag is easier than you would expect and is a perfect project for confident beginners.

This special Sunday workshop will be led by the designer behind Blue Calla patterns, Celine! Get hands-on assistance from the pattern designer herself and discover all that’s possible with this versatile crossbody bag!
