It's been a while since I posted due to being away from home, being sick and binge watching Craftsy classes. For October, Craftsy had a deal for $10.00 you got an all-access pass to watch as many classes as you wanted.
Here are the classes that I liked best:
Sewing on the Edge - Lynda Maynard
Great neckline info for knits & wovens
The week-end Duffel - Betz White
Step-by-step instructions. The info would also work for smaller bags & totes.
Design your own handbag - Brett Bara
Not for beginners, but a lot of good techniques for intermediate bag makers.
Foundation paper piecing - Carol Doak
Great for beginners & intermediate quilters.
Easy zippered bags - Joan Hawley
Great for beginners.
Since I like sewing bags, it's not surprising that 3 of favorites are for bag making.
Another class I watched is titled "Sewing With Fleece: Essential
Techniques" with Pattie Otto. I really like the
printable patterns for an easy hat and mittens that come in 4 sizes. I
had been thinking about making some fleece hats as Christmas gifts so
was happy to run across this class.
Here are the hats I've made so far:
And this is what the pattern looks like:
They're really quick and easy to make and turn out nice.
