Zip-Top Tote



The Harper Holdall by Lazy Girl Designs is the perfect tote bag to hold all of your goodies. In this class you'll learn bag-making techniques, including how to add a zipper — a valuable skill that can be applied to all sorts of other projects.

If you’ve made a project or two, can rotary cut, and thread a sewing machine, you are ready for this project.

This class has 2 sessions, with an optional 3rd if we need more time to finish.
