Zakka sewing class no. 4 – drawstring tote bags

We had a lot of fun this week at our fourth zakka sewing class.  We made drawstring tote bags, even though we had made tote bags a couple of months ago, because a couple of new members really wanted to make tote bags.  We decided on the drawstring version to keep everyone interested.  

I made muffins.  Vicky made muffins and scones.  She’s amazing.

I love the fabrics people chose.  The Japanese ballet fabric was perfect for a bag, which will be used for a little girl’s dance lessons.  And the navy dot bag will be used as a two-year-old boy’s lunch bag.  So cute!

We are all fast becoming good friends, too.  We go fabric shopping together, and meet up for morning tea.  I am looking forward to our next sewing class – in which we’ll be making boy shorts and girl skirts.  Not strictly “zakka” I realize, but that’s okay.  Having made bags and potholders, we are moving on to children’s apparel.  Vicky will teach the skirt part, and I’ll teach the shorts part.  Fun!
