We will learn to use our 2-thread flatlock and rolled edge stitches with this bag. Both stitches will be used for decorative looks and the flatlock will be used as a construction technique.
Using scrappy strips of fabrics, 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches wide and 18 inches and 21 inches long, you will love the effects of varying thread colors and types. The fabric can be yours or we offer an optional kit of batik strips. Varying the size of the strips adds interest to the completed project.
You will learn how to do a 2-thread flatlock stitch and rolled edge. If your serger cannot do 2 thread stitches, you can use a 3-thread wide stitch for construction.
Due to feedback, the required kit will be optional but you will need to bring the items in the kit. Items in the kit are listed below. Pattern is not optional and I will have it printed for you if you buy the kit. If you do not want to buy it from me, you will need to buy it from Deb Canham at : debcanhamstudio.com and have it printed out so I know you purchased it. Either way, the price is $15.
$ 25.00 Price is for class only, suggested kit is a separate charge ($30.00)
You need to be able to thread your serger, understand how it works, and comfortable with changing settings. This is not a beginner class for using your serger. If you need help with learning how to use your serger we can set up a one-on-one for you for $25 to get you to that point. Call the Ogden store at 385-244-1199.
Kit will include your pattern, looped needle threader, pre-cut foam, tubing, doll-making or leather needles and use of decorative threads needed for the bag. The threads being used are size 8 pearl cotton (Wonderfil Eleganza), and size 8 Razzle (Wonderfil).
You must know how to use your serger. Time will not be taken in class instruction on how to use your serger.
Bring your serger, 4 cones of either matching or coordinating serger thread to your fabric, standard sewing supplies, and if you are using your own fabric several strips of fabric in varying widths from 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches wide. Cut them 40 to 42 inches long. Bring some extra fabric to practice your stitches on. Suggested kit is $30.
