3 Embellished Fabric Bags Course

Choose one or all three of these original patterns from Rami Kim and whip up tote bags that reflect your creativity.

Make a Two Fat Quarter tote, a Lotus Blossom tote, or a Doo Roo Mah Gey tote and learn how to embellish with delicate but easy-to-do fabric folding. You’ll be surprised at how quickly these lovely bags come together.

Hesitant about getting that zipper sewn in the correct way? Rami’s method is fast, stress free, and doesn’t even require a zipper foot!

Along the way, learn how to make a lining that stays put and a box pleat pocket that will keep those small essentials from getting lost in the bottom of the bag. Speaking of the bottom of the bag, Rami will show how to create a flat bottom so your bag will hold its form.

Add the special touch of leather handles and your bag is complete. After making one of these bags, you’ll be eager to make the next—whether for yourself or for a friend!

For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.

What is the meaning of Chopkey?

Chopkey is the Korean word for folding. In this class, you will learn how to fold fabric to add dimension to the finished product. No special fabrics or ribbons are used. On the supply list, Chopkey ribbon or Chopkey fabric amounts simply refer to fabrics or ribbons that will be folded, thus making it Chopkey fabric or Chopkey ribbon—fabric or ribbon that will be folded and used to embellish the bag. When you see how easy it is to do and what a lovely accent it adds to fabric projects, you’ll be glad you purchased the class!
