Serger - Making a Difference Backpack Project

Come join us for a little fun and creativity.  Great way to "give" back to your favorite charity.  We will be making and collecting bag for our local PACE Center for girls in Pasco County.  

Create this fun drawstring backpack with or without a pocket, largely with your serger!  Make it basic with side seams inside the bag or jazz it up with exposed decorative side seams.  Add pizzaz with the optional pocket and one of the following serger embellishments:  Ric Rac, Beading, Piping, Decorative Thread, or Double Fold Bias Binding.  Check out what feet and attachments you'll need for your technique.  If you have a Cover/Chain Stitch machine, you can even make your own straps!  Choose between two Drawstring Backpack Bag size options:  child or teen.

serger 4 thread or 8 thread
