Ditty Bags - 2021 February ByAnnie Bag of the Month

Back in the days when America was a seafaring nation, apprentice sailors made their own ditty bag as part of their apprenticeship. In the course of making the bag, these apprentices learned all the sewing skills they would need as a sailor: how to sew flat-felled seams, installing grommets, and more. And, they had a useful bag to carry all their tools and personal supplies when they went to sea. 

As an apprentice purse-maker, you will learn all the skills needed to make bags and purses as you make your own Ditty Bag:

- Continue to practice quilting fabric with Soft and Stable.

- Learn to make and attach borders and handles.

- Learn to attach a single-slide zipper.

- Learn tips for sewing along curved edges.

- Learn to make and attach bias binding.

Ditty Bags are perfect for any gender and any age. The pattern includes three graduated sizes so that you can carry just about anything and everything.

Please have all of your pieces quilted and cut before class. Let us know if you need instruction on how to do this. Also, please bring your scraps with you to class! You never know when you'll need those.

Our ByAnnie Basics class is a great class to take before this one. It is not required, but would definitely be helpful: ByAnnie Basics Class.
