Make this trendy tri-color tote bag in one day using Kraft-Tex. What’s Kraft-Tex? It’s heavy paper that looks, feels, and wears like leather. It sews, cuts, and washes like fabric.

Make this cute Car Caddy in our July 7 youth class. It’s designed to hang over the car headrest so the backseat passenger has access to their most important travel necessities – snacks! Youth classes are open to boys and girls ages 8-16. Aimee King will teach this class.

This is the #1 best-selling pattern in the sewing world at the moment.

These would make great gifts.
