Tina Purse Sew-a-Long Schedule

I hope you will join me for the Tina Purse Sew-a-Long beginning Thursday April 3rd!

If you have already purchased your pattern, but haven't gotten started, here is your incentive to get it stitched up.  If not, get your pattern and join us on Thursday 4/3 to sew together.  The Sew-a-Long will be an interactive opportunity to make the Tina Purse and have a chance to ask questions, share ideas, and get extra tips beyond the pattern instructions.  I won't be republishing the instructions, but hope to give you additional tips and techniques to sew your purse.

I will be demonstrating View C, but you can make any version and still sew a long with the group.

Here is the planned schedule:

Thursday April 3rd :  Fabric and interfacing selection notes – buy fabric and supplies on the weekend!
Monday April 7th:   Assemble pattern pieces, cut out and fuse interfacing.
Tuesday April 8th:  Sew decorative rings, outer purse body and straps (if you are making your own)
Wednesday April 9th:  Attach handles, create zipper and place into the lining.
Thursday April 10th:   Complete assembling the lining and finish the purse.
