What? Another tutorial? Yes, another tutorial because I felt rather guilty about the previous one. It lacked the typical number of photos I include in my standard craft/sewing tutorials and simply didn’t look right. So here we are. This one is for a very easy DIY bag.
(Disclaimer: I am sure you’ve read and seen tutorials like this before. There is nothing new here, to be honest. But I took photos, had the pieces for the bag ready, and felt like making a bag tutorial. For a change.)
Rectangle shape + dots =
Dotted fabric for outer part of bag (top 12″ x bottom 14″ x sides 16″), lining in checkered pattern (top 12″ x bottom 14″ x sides 16″), short dotted strip for pockets (14″ x 6″), long dotted strip for straps (3″ x 18″)
Cut two of each piece, not including the short strip. Don’t forget allowances.
You will also need zipper that will fit the opening of your bag (i.e. a little over 12″).
1. Sew your straps. Turn inside out and top stitch.
