Craftsy Review: Quilt-As-You-Go Patchwork Bags

Super excited to review the craftsy classes I've bought you can see the classes I've reviewed Craftsy Class Review.  

In this post, I'll review Quilt-As-You-Go Patchwork Bags
with Tara Rebman that blogs over at tinkerfrog

What I learned - I learned everything awesome from this class.  This is quilt-as-you-go, zippers, bag cutting, bag sewing, bag construction, binding, rounded corners, sewing with leather, clutches, & just making anything amazing! I may have given away my rating already.

Seeing all this done is awesome.  I replay the inset zippers about once a month.  They are such smart pockets I've been using these babies. Pretty much this entire class rocked my world.  Tara just made it look all so simple easy, my execution may NOT have been so easy but the results are always there. And as with anything practice makes perfect.  :)  

Teacher - Tara Rebman is so great on camera.  Tara was comfortable and a comfortable chatty while she sews.  It makes the class go fast, too fast if you ask me. I feel she is 100% knowledgeable with this topic. 

Class Content - This class includes bag patterns but also so-so much more.  This is a super fun class to watch.  This class helped me concur some of my ohh yeah I see everyone else doing that but I just don't get it. I do! The techniques Tara presents are clear and super helpful.

Rating - Blah - So So - Like - Love this class.

I love this class. I purchase this class right away when it came up.  I had been oogling over QAYG for a bit and knew a video would be perfect for my learning style.  I've made a few bags and even put in a few zippers but this class helped me become way more comfortable with all of this.

I would recommend this class to any level quilter.

I would buy this class again in a heartbeat!

  1. Sounds like another fun class :o) I was watching the Sarah Fielke class yesterday and completely lost track of time!

  2. I bought this class a while back thinking that I would watch it through the winter. I've been so busy that I haven't yet had time! I'm setting the date,March 15, that I will start! Now I'm excited! Thanks for a great review.
