Learn to make a shoulder bag, your own on-trend cross-body slouchy shoulder bag! A great project for all skill levels.
In this class, we will guide you through every step to make a shoulder bag – your own version of our Boho Button Bag.
Using our downloadable pattern pieces, we’ll talk you through cutting your fabric and interfacings before walking you through each stage of the construction.
