BAG CLASS - Make your own Packing Cubes

Get organized and streamline packing with these handy zippered bags.  These are like having drawers in your suitcase.  Also great for home storage, organizing sewing projects, taking supplies to sewing class, and more.  A great gift idea, too.

Constructed of stabilized fabric (quilting cotton is nice), light-weight mesh for visibility, and a sturdy zipper. Finished inside and out; no raw edges anywhere.  Seams can be inside or outside the bag.  These packing cubes are not bulky and take up little space in the suitcase, yet each hold lots of stuff. Perfect for organizing all your travel needs. Great gifts for anyone who travels or just has lots of stuff to store. Cubes can be monogrammed during or after construction to personalize.  Yes, you can buy ready-made but they aren't nearly as fashionable as these, and they are not all that hard to make.  Just a basic sewing machine is needed, one that can do straight stitching and maybe a zigzag stitch.

3 convenient sizes: Small: 3"H x 11"W x 7"D; Medium: 3½"H x 14"W x 10"D; Large: 4"H x 18"W x 13"D.  The small one is shown above.  Click here for more photos.  The small cube is ideal for holding socks and undergarments. The medium cube is perfect for holding T-shirts, blouses, dress shirts, bathing suits. The large cube is sized to hold bulkier items, such as jeans or sweaters, light weight jackets, towels,

Written instructions include all cutting and construction instructions; NO separate pattern purchase.  Cutting will be done at home and cut pieces will be brought to class.  Construction of one medium size bag will be done in class.   Make the large and small bags at home, after the class.

Class are small; limited to 6 people.  If classes are full you can email your name and contact information to me to be notified when the class is scheduled again, or add your name to the Wait List to be notified when new classes are scheduled.
