Bagmaking Class: Gus Tool Bag

The adorable Gus Tool Bag, designed by Indigo Bird Design, will keep all of your items in order. Its wide middle opening is ideal for storing larger items — think scissors, yarn, rulers, hammers, snacks… the sky’s the limit! The exterior pockets, on the other hand, will conveniently keep all smaller, miscellaneous things. (Read: Candy bars fit pretty well in there.) Level-up and add extra pockets to the inside, as well! Complete with two comfortable handles, your tool bag will be ready to accompany you wherever you go — Gift it to your loved ones, bring it to classes at Sew Sew, sit it by your sewing machine, or slip it inside your bag so that you don’t get mixed up at the checkout counter. There are so many uses for the Gus Tool Bag, but one thing’s for sure: it’s going to be your new BFF!


Choose Your Size!
In this lesson, you have the option to make a small or large tool bag:

• Small Gus: 12" x 5.5" x 5" 
• Big Gus : 14"W x 6.75" H x 5"D


The pattern is included in the class, but you will need to purchase the materials in the diagram below to make your tool bag. If you purchase these supplies in our store, you will receive them at 20% off.

Play with Different Fabrics!
One of the coolest things about the Gus Tool Bag is that you can make it out of virtually anything. Cotton, interfaced with SF 101, is always a great choice, but canvas is a phenomenal material to work with, too. It’s very sturdy, yet most machines are still able to sew through this thicker material. Plus, we have a lot of fun canvas choices, each of which will give you a beautiful project. As for handles, you can make them fabric OR webbing/leather. What will you choose?
