When I talk to other sewists about bags, there seem to be two common concerns. First, there is the idea you are creating something three dimensional. Two dimensional objects seem easier to make. The second concerns comes with the techniques that often accompany the creation of a bag. Zippers!?! Piping!?! What the heck is SF 101? I hear the blood pressure racing and it stops people in their tracks.
This month, I hope to break down some of the concerns through tutorials, interviews and helpful resources. As I mentioned here, we have a full schedule. You can bookmark this page to retrieve all of the week’s posts in one location.
