The other day my mom made a blind with a really pretty sky blue cotton, so when she was finished I stole the scraps and made a bag! I did this without a pattern (which I am pretty proud of) and by eye.
Here we go:
|I decided to make a 3D bag as opposed |
to a tote bag, and these are the pattern
pieces I cut out.
|Using an ancient electrified Singer machine |
(not a machine that sings, it's a sewing machine)
I sewed the main body of my bag together.
|That created corners like this...|
|...That looks like this when turned right side out!|
|Hemming the top, I was ready to add the|
final piece... The back / flap.
|I also created a long shoulder strap, |
just by hemming and turning inwards a
long, 2" piece of fabric.
|I added decorations (some free badges|
I picked up at the Apple store!)
