Hello Craft Buds! This is Lindsay Conner and Janelle MacKay, co-authors of the book On the Go Bags. We wanted to personally invite you to a fun event happening this spring, which you can take part in from your very own sewing room.
Janelle and I will each be teaching the key steps of two popular patterns from our book, the “Airport Sling” (perfect for taking with you on summer travels) and the “Sporty Strap Pack” (featured on the book’s cover). We’ll start with cutting out interfacing and preparing the pattern pieces, and then will help you with any key steps along the way, like installing hardware and assembling the bags. If you have questions, you can ask them in our interactive Facebook group!
April 15 to May 1: Airport Sling
May 1 to June 15: Sporty Strap Pack
After we’ve gone through the assembly for each bag, it’s your turn to sew along and add your own spin on the pattern for your chance to win one of several giveaways during the event!
Join our On the Go Bags Facebook group for more info.
There’s no need to sign up for the sew along, as details will be posted for you in the group. You can sew along for the whole event, just make one of the bags, or simply follow along for lots of inspiration and tips! We hope you will join us.
