ONSITE: Sew a Carry-All Bag
Using Julia's signature "carry-all" pattern, make a unique bag that combines function and style in a contemporary carpetbag design. Julia based her pattern on a WWI red cross knitting bag in the Valentine museum collection and uses it every day for everything from beach visits to market runs and days in the office.
