Don't see a time that works for you?
In this class we will work together to sew a multipurpose drawstring backpack with outside pocket. Day 1: Picking your fabric - we will discuss types of fabric and what fabrics are appropriate for this project. We will be preparing our pattern this day as well. Students will need to purchase (or otherwise source) the fabric for their project between day 1 and day 2. Day 2: Cutting your pattern - will will work together to cut our pattern/fabric. We will be discussing grains and directional...
Students will have a better understanding of fabrics, patterns (and instructions) and basic sewing methods after finishing this class.
The homework for this class varies by class. Class 1 - source fabric (two fat quarters) Class 2 - finish cutting if you don't finish during class Class 3 & 4 - finish the basic construction of bag if you don't finish in class Class 5 - take a photo of your finished project and post it to share with the class.
Lesson 1: printed copy of pattern - this will be provided in the classroom Lesson 2: fabric and other materials required for pattern (we will discuss these more during lesson 1) scissors (or roller cutter and mat), pins, table space Lesson 3 - 5: sewing machine (and adult supervision/assistance if necessary)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need to have access to a working sewing machine for this class. The instructor will be using an older version of this machine: https://amzn.to/2XtCcsY Students are responsible for knowing how to turn on, and thread their spacific machine prior to beginning class. If you need help with these steps often craft store employees (who you can meet with personally) and/or youtube videos are of great assistance. Please let the instructor know prior to class if you are still struggling and we will find a way to help.
