When the class began, we were given our pick of bag shape and fabric kit. Since I hadn’t touched a sewing machine in a very long time, I chose a basic shape and fabric with a toile print because I fell in love with its characters and colour.
The Kit contained, fabric for the straps, outer bag, lining, pocket and bag base. It also contained Vilene, wadding and a magnetic clasp. Written and picture instructions were also given.
Here’s how I got on
Despite having little experience with a sowing machine and no experience at bag making, I managed to complete my very own in one day. The only difficulty I came across was manoeuvring the thick layers of fabric trough the machine. The step by step instructions were easy to follow when combined with the pictures and when I came across any difficulty’s Mary was there to help.
I already have pick out the fabric for my next bag.
Have you made a bag before? Comment and share :D
