1 hour bag- tutorial
This bag is so easy ! This is the new bag I made to take back to work this term. It took less than an hour from choosing the fabric to dumping my junk in it. In fact this tutorial took waaaayyy longer than the bag ! (the colours are great in real life but the orange doesn't photograph very well - sorry ) This pattern is on a piece of A4 paper so I'm sure you can work it out from that. You will need: Using the pattern piece and cutting on the fold of your fabrics. 2 pieces in your handbag fabric2 pieces in your lining fabric2 pieces in wadding or batting to give your bag a bit of body.1 magnetic purse snap (optional)2 x 6 1/2 inch squares of fabric for the pocket (optional).2 strips of fabric 3 inches x approx 29 inches for the strap1 strip of wadding about 2 1/2 inches by 292 large Buttons Start with the pocket. Turn right sides out through the gap. . Pin your pocket to the right side of one of your bag linings. I like to do two lines - looks good and adds a bit of strength too.
