In this class, Mary Ellen will teach you on how to make Nesting Clam Shell zippered Bags--beware, making these bags is addictive!? Zippered pouches in five sizes are perfect for storing and carrying makeup, sewing supplies, tech gear, and more. You may quilt the fabric or leave it unquilted and add optional iron-on vinyl laminate for a wipe-clean interior.? Double slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide; attached side panels prevent contents from falling out.? An optional strap with swivel hook may be added. When empty, the bags nest to save space and be cute!  This class is perfect for an advanced beginner sewist.
