In this Sewing 102 class, you will put your sewing skills to work and sew up a beautiful waxed canvas + leather tote bag! This rugged, stylish, and versatile tote will be made of waxed canvas, and offer the capacity to handle carrying your laptop, books, and other daily essentials. Not only will you go home with a tote that you made from start-to-finish, you will also learn indispensable bag sewing techniques for handling heavy-weight fabric on a home sewing machine. You will also learn how to attach leather handles with quick-set brads.Prerequisite:
