We’re Doing a FREE Sulky Webinar! How to Box Corners + NEW Bag Kit

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

We hope you can join us for our first ever Webinar. Our friends at Sulky invited us to be a part of their Sewing Online with Sulky series. On September 17th, Liz Johnson will be live online, teaching you how to make box corners. Read on to find out all the details and get the link to register. The Webinar is free and you can watch live on September 17th, 2019 at 2:00 pm ET. It will also be recorded, so once registered, you can also watch on-demand whenever is convenient for you! 

Our Webinar is titled: How to Sew Box Corners for Bags and More with Sew4Home. Based on our popular step-by-step tutorials, this hour-long Webinar shows you how to turn a flat square into something with dimension.

You’ll learn how to add boxed corners to a bag, box or basket (and more) for a professional finish. We’ll go over two ways to measure and sew the corners, as well as talk about working with stabilizers and fusible batting for structure and functionality.

We’ll also outline all the formulas you need to determine the correct cut height and width when boxing corners for which you don’t have a pattern. And… no need to take notes; we created a Handy Reference Guide wth Corner Measurement Formulas. It has all the math you need on one double-sided sheet that can be downloaded for free during the Webinar. It’s a great addition to anyone’s sewing toolbox.

Sulky will also be offering Webinar specials and door prizes — fun! Click to register; it's free.

To put all your box corner skills into action, we also created a brand new Sporty Sling Backpack pattern. It will be available as a curated kit at the close of the Webinar and includes all the specialty notions and instructions you’ll need to create the bag yourself. The kit even includes a copy of our Sew4Home Bags & Totes book so you can make even more great projects.

Thanks to its deep boxed corners, our versatile Sporty Sling Backpack is roomy enough for toting items to the gym, carrying sewing or knitting supplies to class, traveling on an airplane or simply using as your favorite everyday bag. It features a grommet-and-cording top for a cinched closure covered with a flap. A single broad strap at the center back makes it fast and easy to loop over your shoulder and super comfortable to carry. Two zippered pockets at the front and back of the bag hold smaller items. Use your favorite home décor weight fabric with a matching cotton lining.

Remember, it’s FREE to register, and you can either join us live or watch the Webinar on-demand later. All the presentation materials are available whether watching live or on-demand.

Loved the webinar, thanks! I learned I've been measuring wrong.  I can't find where to download the pattern.  Any help?

@Lucie - Thanks for joining. It was super fun. This is an exclusive pattern for the Webinar so it is only available through the Webinar at this time. We will eventually be adding it into our Etsy shop, but probably not until next year sometime.
