Handmade Holiday Sew-Alongs!

Holiday Sew-Along Announcement | Grainline Studio

I can't believe I'm saying this, but the holiday season is upon us! With that in mind we've got a Holiday Sew-Along Series planned for you with two of our best gift patterns, the Stowe Bag and the Portside Dopp Kit. Both of these bags make great gifts for the handmade appreciators in your lives, and with our sew-along schedule you'll have them sewn up with time to spare. This week we'll be sharing the schedule as well as the supplies you'll need to make each bag so that you can get your supplies ordered in time. Even if you know how to make these bags already, we've broken down the steps into 3 easy sewing sessions a week so that you won't be overwhelmed come December! So with that, let's get to the schedule.
