a little book bag
Tuesday, April 05, 2022
I apologize I don't have many details about this project because I can't find the pattern! This was just a simple sewing pattern that I used to go through some of my stash fabrics. It is a reversible bag with a pocket. I use it for carrying library books, my planners or a quick sewing project. The quilt shop I purchased the fabric at had the material for making the bag handles that you could buy by the yard. The fabric I used was Lucky Strikes that I had in my stash. One side is a heavier weight cotton canvas, while the other is a quilting canvas, and I didn't notice any problems in construction with using the two different weights of fabrics. I have some leftover fabric, so I think I might make a little pouch to match.
As I was taking photos, I realized something about the fabric! While this fabric is not directional, the way the print is, seems like it is directional depending on how it is cut. Just some advice if you make a bag like this- pay attention to fabric direction!
