  • Make-N-Take: Decorative Book Bags
    07/20/2019 @ 10:00am - 12:00pm Group Study Large Main Branch

    This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Rochester Public Library.

    Carry your books in style when you visit the library! You can create a colorful summer garden on a book bag. First you will sketch a summer garden scene. Then, using Pellon 2-sided sticky back fusible web and colorful fabrics, cut the pieces out and place them on the prepared surface. You can move flowers and stems around until you are happy, then iron the bag to fuse the fabrics together. No sewing skills needed unless you choose to enhance your bag with simple embroidery work before ironing it down. You can also create any other design you wish.

    This is part of an recycle series here at the library. We have covered the old logo on the bags we had for bookclub collections. The bags are in really good shape and have years of life in them.
