Katie Bartz ‘engineers’ her sewing projects -- they are truly developed with construction in mind, as she creates a solid, no-fail process during the design process -- much like we envision designing a bridge or a home. The difference? Katie uses fabric and a sewing machine, incorporating a wide range of techniques into every project. Discover the joy of creating The Montana, a bag designed to satisfy the most creative among us, as she shares her systems, methods, tips and techniques in this wonderful online course. You’ll easily adopt them as your own, and have a great bag to carry, too.
When you sign up for this online course, you will get the PDF bag pattern and the embroidery design files, so you can make it as many times, in as many ways as you like.
When Katie designed The Montana Bag, she not only engineered the construction, she focused on the features and aesthetics, too. In this case, decorative stitching – curves, quilting and Madiera applique. Maybe you hear the word ‘quilting’ and you get excited. Or, maybe you cringe with lack of confidence. Either way, you’ll discover Katie’s tried-and-true techniques for easily and accurately adding those all-important quilting stitches, in turn giving your bag a high-end, boutique feel. Folks won’t believe you made it! Along with a perfectly designed Madeira scallop and its echo, you’ll take it over the top….and that’s just the outside of the bag!The interior is fully lined, with a generous double pocket (one of which has a zipper), the bag rests on metal purse feet and allows for a variety of handle styles.
Katie’s on-screen style is one of calm confidence – which will instantly transfer to you as you watch and sew at home. As she demonstrates each step she explains what’s happening, what to look for (and look out for!) and why, so you’re completely at ease and productive throughout the online course. Plus, she’s available to answer your questions, provide expert guidance and, best of all, celebrate when you complete your Montana bag and send in a picture – all just a post away.
Pattern is included with course purchase. Finished bag size is approximately: 15” x 3 ½” x 10”.
