Join Bailey in sewing the Orton Bag! 

The Orton Bag by Merchant and mills is a simple and classic oversized lined tote. This simple but classic bag is a great way to learn and practice the basics of sewing! You’ll learn how to cut out fabric, sew pattern pieces, mind your seam allowances, sew self-handles, incorporate lining, and more! Once you've made this bag once, we hope you feel inspired to give the other itterations a try as well. The sky is the limit, and a good handmade bag is required for the journey.

A wonderful class for beginning sewists with some machine experience, or if you want to practice with Oilskin!

Cost of instruction is $85, Material Fee $9 includes the Orton Bag Pattern, total class fee is $94. Please purchase the instruction fee and the kit fee!

Finished Measurements - length 22 in, width 24.5 in.

What to bring:

- (1 yd) medium weight woven non-stretch canvas, oilskin or denim for bag and handles

- (3/4 yd) light-medium weight woven fabric for lining

- Size 90 needle

- coordinating or contrasting thread

- Machine + accessories (foot pedal, power cord, bobbin, etc)

- Basic tools are provided in our studio for students. However, feel free to bring you own tools for your personal use. 

- We will take a 30 min lunch break so feel free to bring snacks or a lunch. Our neighbor Heathers (1 block away) also offers great grab and go food options!

We recommend bringing your own machine so you can continue to learn the ins and outs of sewing on your home machine! If you need, we offer studio machines to use upon request. Machines are limited. Please feel free to reach out to us at for more info.

Space is limited to 4 students! If you need to cancel later than 1 week before class is held, you will receive store credit.
