Mondo Bag large pieced tote bag
Instructor: Kathy Barden

2 Class Sessions
Class 1: February 19
Class 2: February 26

The Mondo Bag is perfect for carrying your show-and-tell to guild meetings or all your clothes for a weekend away. It can haul a ton of stuff! The Midi Bag is a downsized version of the Mondo—more practical for everyday use—but just as handy. Choose your bag size— the construction is the same! Learn to use fusible grids for perfect intersections. Warning: don’t tell your friends it was “a piece of cake” or be prepared to take orders for both sizes. Start in class one and with some homework finish your bag in class two. Easy enough for the confident beginner and fun for the expert too.
