Bag Making Classes – Utica, NY

Over the past 4 weeks, I’ve been taking some amazing classes at Tiger Lily Quilts in Utica, NY and have really enjoyed them!

My teacher, Marlous, owner and operator of not only is an amazing teacher but has designed these patterns herself!  You can find her patterns at the following links:

To find “The Little Messenger Bag” pattern (green and brown bag) click here.

To find the “Cabana Mesh Tote” pattern (black and watermelon print) click here.  It is a quick and easy bag to make.  I used 5″ half square triangles instead of charm squares (5″ squares) to create the zig zag look.  See my half square triangle (HST) tutorial here.

The “Diaper Bag” (also called the “Monster Tote”) is not listed yet, but you can view all of the Marlous Designs available bag/tote patterns here.

If you’re ever in Central NY, I hope you can check out some of her classes.  I am so happy I was able to take them before my husband and I head back to our home in Toronto, Canada.

Happy Sewing,
