Snapshot Foldover Purse

Join us to make a
 versatile foldover bag in your choice of two sizes.  The bags have zippered tops that fold over and close with magnetic snaps.  Need more room? Just open the flap and use the bag with the flap up!

Because there is no quilting or bindings, these bags are easy to make!

A zippered welt pocket on the exterior back is perfect for quick access to a phone, keys, or other small items. Inside is a gathered fabric slip pocket which is divided into three sections to separate and organize all your essentials.

Carry the bags over the shoulder, crossbody, or around the waist using the adjustable, detachable strap. Or detach the strap and carry as a clutch.

Students should bring their sewing machine with all of the appropriate parts (including the instruction manual, foot control and power cord). Students must be familiar with the basic operation (i.e. winding a bobbin and threading the machine) of their machine for creative classes, and the machine must be in good working condition. Alternatively, a student may pre-register to rent a sewing machine (when avail;able) for creative classes at a rental rate of $15 per class session.  Students who experiences great difficulty with their sewing machine during class may need to rent a machine.
