Join Jess from Sallie Tomato in the Ginger Bag Online Class! Ginger is a trendy, medium-sized crossbody bag! Also, I designed this bag so the Lucky Penny Wallet will fit perfectly inside. Ginger is a very quick sew, and has been designed for beginners. The name of this pattern was inspired by American actress, dancer, and singer, Ginger Rogers. Here is the video's breakdown:

RECOMMENDED FABRICS: For the best results, use quilt weight cotton, canvas, denim, or linen for the exterior. I recommend quilt weight cotton for the lining. Try using cork or vinyl for the contrast, or you can use quilt weight cotton, canvas, denim, or linen. TIP - If making the bag from all cotton, you can eliminate the Interfacing and substitute the Fusible Fleece for Foam Stabilizer. This will result in a more structured bag.
