Use it as a basket, a bag, a hold-all: once you make one fabric bucket, you'll come up with all kinds of uses for them! This is a great project to renew your sewing skills and bump them up a notch, and a fun way to use smaller pieces of textiles you've printed, dyed or collected. We will learn how to piece fabrics together, sew a curved edge to a straight edge, make straps and pockets, and you'll leave with a beautiful reversible container. 

Skill level requiredBeginner Plus. Students must bring their own sewing machine and know the bare basics of how to use it: how to thread it and make a simple seam. (We highly recommend our Cal's Befriend Your Sewing Machine class if it has been a while since you used your machine!)

Supplies: 1/2 yard of outer fabric (medium weight woven cotton, like denim, canvas, quilting cotton -- can be smaller pieces that add up to about 1/2 yard) 1/2 yard of lining fabric (as above) All-purpose thread to match Ruler Basic sewing kit: Scissors (for cutting fabric), pins + pincushion, seam ripper, chalk, tape measure

Sustenance: Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
