Messenger Bag From Cargo Pants

Messenger Bag From Cargo Pants
Want to make one of these? From a pair of these? Here's the tutorial! Materials: 1 pair cargo pants (from the going to Goodwill pile of course) 1/2 yard lining material bias tape (store bought or make your own) thread {1/4" seam allowances throughout} Getting started... Take your pair of cargo pants and cut the inseam of each leg of the pants up to the crotch area. Cut the bag exterior pieces: front flap (this is where the cargo pocket comes in handy - cool pockets you don't have to sew!) Cut the same size pieces from the lining material. Make the strap by placing the long pieces right sides together, sew down each side. Now make the front flap. Assembling the lining: Take gusset pieces (2 sides and a bottom) and sew the short ends together. Lay your connected gusset pieces right sides together on top of the front of the bag piece, pin, sew. Lay the back of the bag down and set the front/gusset piece on top, pin in place. Make the exterior just like you did the lining of the bag.

Summer Internships - paid internship program search - college students Many college students and recent graduates work as interns. That means they take a temporary job to get hands-on experience, usually in a field they’re interested in. College graduates sometimes use internships to start a career. But did you know that you can get a summer or after-school internship while you’re still in high school? Sew a Hobo-Bag You will need fabric for the shell (the outside of the bag) and the lining, and the strap. Actual yardage will vary depending on your size. Either the lining or the shell material (or both if you like) should be a heavier fabric, to support all your stuff. Both of the bags I made are lined in a heavy duck cloth. The cream fabric is muslin, which makes the bag softer and slouchier, and the green fabric is a bottomweight, which makes the bag stiffer and hold its shape more. Whichever fabrics you choose, they should not be knits or other stretchy fabrics.

Nothing else really happened that year, but it was a great idea. he had a pair of old cargo pants, for which he and i were famous for wearing, and they had developed a large hole in a rather inconvenient place. he cut off the pockets, which had pockets on them, and pockets on those, and sewed them together on three sides to make a bag, which he proudly introduced to me as a "Man-Pocket." This was not his great idea. He showed to to me knowing that i would like it and make my own, and then wear it to school and get lots of "thats a purse" ridicule.
