Bag Making Basics: Free Craftsy Class

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Does your outfit for tomorrow need a new bag? This may seem like a silly question but it’s one that my inner voice asks all the time and I’m not really sure why. Maybe it’s because bags are the easy accessory that can be made in a flash, come in too many colors/shapes to count and never make me feel self-conscious about my weight. (Don’t eye roll me, we’ve all been there!)

  1. how interesting I paid for this class a year or so ago when i first joined craftsy ….now they are allowing it for free doesn’t seem fair to those of us who paid

    • Sandee, I had no idea that it was ever a paid class and have reached out to my contact there. I’ll keep you posted if I hear any feedback.
