About the Course


Beginner Sewing- Tote Bag

This class is part of our Learn to Sew Series.

In this class you will learn to use interfacing to level up your sewing game, and make a lined tote bag with boxed corners.

Interfacing stabilizes and stiffens fabrics, which adds firmness, shape, structure, and support to the items you sew. Interfacing is used in the creation of bags, collars, waistbands, cuffs, and more!
