I have the feeling that making bags is going to be addicting in the same way that making pillows is - as there is something so satisfying in seeing the finished product after all the prep work that goes into it. I was actually planning on making a bag tutorial and started out taking pictures of it to share, but then a few little disasters happened and well it caused me to shift directions a few times and thus not make for a very good tutorial.
- 1/2 yard of Kokka Cars (canvas cotton weight)
- 1/2 yard of houndstooth fabric (found in the men's suit fabric section at JoAnn)
- 50 inches of red seat belt material (I actually bought two yards as I wasn't sure how much I would need)
I decided to box the corners so that it would stand up and I could fit larger amounts of items in it. Never having boxed corners before, I was fairly frustrated for about 10 minutes before I finally figured out a super easy way to do this, which I am planning on sharing when I make my next bag!
This bag can be used to carry diapers, blankets, other Bubb stuff. Or it can go with us to the library.
And I am pretty excited by the lining. Next time I might put in a snap or a zippered pocked. The possibilities are well endless when it comes to bags!
I decided to put my label on the outside as that is what all the "fashion" bags do and I thought I would do the same :)
On a side note, I finally broke down and bought the little robot fabric by Kokka. I have been drooling over this for months and so I had to share!
