Clam Up Bag

May 21, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


Clam Up Pouch

We’ve not ran a weekend bag class for oooh ages so we thought we’d kick off with a fun and easy make. The Clam-up Pouch comes in five sizes are perfect for storing and carrying make-up, sewing supplies, tech gear, and much more. Double-slide zippers and handy grab tabs make the bags easy to open wide and the attached side panels prevent contents from falling out. An optional strap with swivel hook may also be added.

Beginner friendly, to start you on your bag making journey and an ideal make for those experienced in bag making and fancy some sew time with others.

Beginner sewist will get one made in the day more experienced could possibly make-up more.

Finished sizes of bags are as follows:
Extra Small (XS): 2-3/4in H x 3-1/2in W x 2-5/8in D
Small (S): 3-1/2in H x 4-1/2in W x 3-3/8in D
