From my Q4 list...
Bag making 101, right here at Cedar Fork Stitches!
The raw materials: Some scraps from my Weeds layer cake, some Kona scraps, osnaburg, and ultra suede in green(?)...
I decided to go with the black ultrasuede...a substance entirely new to me, gifted some time ago by my brother-in-law.
Although I can visualize what it is I want in terms of size/dimensions...I needed a little help to know how to arrive at those dimensions, without experimenting with my limited project fabrics!
Has anyone else used an old *saved* chip bag as a "trial size" pattern??
The real question is, has anyone else saved an old chip bag, much less, boxed the corners on one :)
Hehehe! Not to worry, no fabric scissors were harmed in the making of this plastic bag! :)
Here is what I had by the end of the afternoon...
I was just too close....
I only had to redo the *twisted* strap once!
I included a pocket, and managed to get it on the correct side of the bag :)
I don't think it will look this "tidy" with stuff in it!
Nonetheless, pretty tickled with my first bag-making attempt :)
Kinda "preppy-tote-y", don't ya think? :)
