Welcome to the Shades of Scarlet Bag, a Serger Class (6.5 Hours + KIt, just bring you and your machine)
Get the most out of your serger! You will become familiar with all aspects of your serger while creating this exotic jewel-toned bag.
The shimmery silk taffeta and dupioni strips are serged, embellished and then a zipper and wire cage are inserted to enable easy access to the ribbon trimmed clear pockets on the inside.
Use the bag to organize accessories, jewelry, or add a handle and wear it when you go out.
