3/7/20 Ditty Bags: Let's Get Organized! 10am-2pm

Requirements: Hardware kit TBD - will include everything you need to make this project except the fabric which you will choose to make it your own! 

Month 3 of the Let's Get Organized Club

Back in the days when America was a seafaring nation, apprentice sailors made their own ditty bag as part of their apprenticeship.

In the course of making the bag, these apprentices learned all the sewing skills they would need as a sailor: flat-felled seams, installing grommets, etc. And, they had a useful bag to carry all their tools and personal supplies when they went to sea.

Apprentice purse-makers will learn all the skills they need to make bags and purses as they make their own Ditty Bag.

Practice quilting with fabric and Soft & Stable
Learn to make and attach borders and handles, to attach a single-slide zipper, to sew along curved edges, and to make and attach bias binding. 

Ditty Bags are perfect for any gender and any age. The three graduated sizes ensure that you'll be able to use them for anything and everything.
