April 2021

This month we will make project bags. You can decide between two “ByAnnie” patterns. “Piecekeeper” is made with a quilted back and a mesh front. “Project Bags 2.0” is a quilted back and a vinyl front. The zippers are installed slightly different. “Project Bags 2.0” has multiple sizes but “Piecekeeper” is easily adaptable to make different sizes. You could easily make one of each to learn both skills.
