The Beatle Bag Workshop

Date/Time: Tuesday, April 30, 2019 from 10 am till 5 pm

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Join Carrie for a fun day making the Beatle Bag - it's a great roll up bag to hold all your sewing supplies, small projects, make-up, jewelry, etc. The pattern includes 4 heavy duty inserts with zip closures. On the inside are two pockets big enough to hold full size scissors and rotary cutter. It also has a detachable pin cushion to put by your sewing machine.
Come sew it up, fill it up, roll it up and off you go!
There is homework for this class - all pieces on page 1 of the pattern need to be cut out and the quilting on the bag body outside and inside (page 2) need to be done before arriving the morning of class.

Instructor: Carrie Licatovich

  • The Beatle Bag Pattern by Abbey Lane Quilts (includes 4 bag inserts)
  • Pattern calls for 1 fat quarter for the outside, one fat quarter for the inside and 5/8 yard of the accent fabric. If you have fabric you will want to fussy cut, you'll need 1/2 yard cuts instead of fat quarters for the outside and inside, also stripes are adorable for the accent fabric - you'll need a yard if you want to make bias binding.
