Welcome the the Fiskars Craft Sew-a-long!
So glad you could join me in this sew-a-long where I show you step by step on a weekly basis on how to make something. You are sewing along with me!
This post is the 2nd and guides you in cutting your pieces. You have one week to complete the cutting of the bag pieces. This post however will be up for the duration that this blog exists so you have plenty of time to do this if you don't have time this time around.
If you have ANY questions please ask. I am here to help you.
There is also a prize to be chosen for one participant! So comment in the below thread to say How you are going and put any tips and hints that you think will be helpful.
You will be making this handbag/tote bag with me....
