that have tormented me for I don't know how long. So on
Friday I rolled up my sleeves and made a bag (surprise surprise).
DH teases that this bag brings the total to 1 million.
I think he's exaggerating.
and since I had nothing better to do I took tons of pictures
so I could produce a tutorial. If you have questions because
of my spastic directions just email me.
So you'll need the following:
a pair of ratty jeans or some cute Amy Butler fabric
(or whatever you want. This is your bag)
canvas (I used some old canvas curtains)
Coordinating fabric for the lining
1 biggish button
Okay now do this:
piece. Just stitch along the short end and press the seam
center of each strip and gather by pulling a single thread.
the corners. Pinch your corners like so:
Fold the loopy thing to make a sort of triangle in the
center. Stitch in place. Also, sew your button onto the
outside of your bag.
loopy thing in their proper areas. Make sure your straps
are even and your closure will hold the button right.
Now for the exciting part. Stitch around the top of your
cute bag....aaaand your done!
I hung mine on my pantry door so that I could see it.....a lot.
I really like this one.
