Sling Bag Tutorial - Part 1
I tend to have a short attention span when it comes to projects, that's why I like making a variety of things. My Etsy shop has an assortment of stuff in it for that very reason...I don't want to make the same style of the same product over and over! Bags are one of my favorite things to make when I feel like changing up the pace a little. I whipped up a few of these hobo/sling bags to put in the shop. Fun! It will look like this when you open it up. We are going to be very thrifty with our use of fabric, and use the cut out pieces from the straps as the pockets. Measure down from the top straight edge, nine inches. Trim off the rounded bottom. Cut a strip of narrow elastic, 8 inches long. Your pocket should now look like this. Do that to all four pockets. Now sew just the outer edges of the bags together. With RIGHT sides together, stuff one bag into the other. Sew the two bags together. Reach your hand through there and pull the bags right side out. Stuff one of the bags into the other.
