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.
Here are the lovely bags everyone made. It was a smaller class this time, because a few people couldn’t make it. But not to worry, here’s my tutorial for everyone who missed the class.
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!
