Do you have a lot of little bags that look great but you can’t see what’s inside?  This take along bag has a clear vinyl window in the front so you will always know what’s in there!  Sewing with vinyl is simple and adds such a fun element to any project.  Don’t be intimidated by the zippered closure on top, it is installed completely in the flat, so no worries!  This bag is perfect for all your small sewing notions or your travel toiletries or even your prescription bottles.  Make one or make 10!  They sew up in no time at all and I’m sure there is someone you know that might love a personal little gift to brighten up their day.  The back piece inside can be made using a contrasting color to add a nice element.   The finished size of this bag is 7” x 8 ½”.  We are purchasing the pattern so it will be here in a week or so.  The cost of the pattern is $8.50.  This is a 3 hour class so the charge will be $10.  Hope to see you in class!
