Supplies List:
#120 Barbados Bag by Pink Sand Beach Designs. Available at Mulqueens.
Fabric (FQ = Fat Quarter)
2 FQ - Fabric 1 - Bag Top Front & Back (or ½ yd)

2 FQ - Fabric 3 - Lower Front & Back Pockets (or ½ yd)
1 FQ - Fabric 4 - Strap (or ¼ yd)
2 FQ - Fabric 5 - Lining (or ½ yd)

I strongly suggest that you select non-directional fabric for this project. The “Front Pocket” and “Back Pocket” are the blue fabric at the lower portion that is the dominant fabric of the bag. The “Pocket Accent” is the lighter green fabric in the middle of the other two fabrics only on the front. The “Bag Front and Back” is the lighter blue fabric at the top of the bag. (See Page 1 of your pattern.)

Thread – construction threads to match your main, lining and contrasting fabric

Basic Sewing Kit – good scissors, thread scissors, rotary cutter, rulers, air/water erasable or chalk markers, good long pins, seam ripper, Clover Wonder clips, etc.

Your own Iron and Pad will definitely save you time in not having to wait.
A Pressing Cloth or just a piece of light-color cotton fabric or muslin for pressing purposes.

Handy Tool to bring to class: Stiletto with a sharp point (to hold pieces in place as you stitch - especially helpful when sewing on bindings)

After our initial Organizational Meeting, you will have a small amount of preparations at home PRIOR to our Construction class meeting.

For the all-day construction class meeting, bring lunch or snacks so that we can sew the entire day.
