These bags are fast and fun to make, quick to finish, and just as fun to make again to gift. The first class is for picking yarn, the specific little bag you want to make, to order your hardware kit, and to learn about successful felting. You go home and knit and felt your bag(s – yes! make more than one!).
The second class is devoted to finishing the bag(s) you have made. Come and join Nora for this fun, hands-on, student-centered workshop.
