Welcome and Supply List

Welcome to the Harper Holdall class!

Get ready to make a new best friend: Harper is the perfect zip top tote to hold all you need whether it’s a craft, a day on the go, a quick getaway and more.

Harper has a few pieces that are easy to prep and go together like a dream. You'll be done before you know it.

Class & Pattern: The class content coordinates with the Harper Holdall pattern, so you can follow along and refer back and forth as you make this gem of a bag. Print the pattern and use it to make notes and to reference as you watch the videos.

Supplies are listed below.

Comments, Questions, & Pics: Be sure to post comments inside each lesson and share pics of your beautiful makes.

Project Galleries: Post a pic and tell us a little about your gorgeous Harper Holdall. And if you made modifications, post a pic and tell us what you did.

I'm so glad you joined me for this fun project.
