Cloth bag sewing tutorial

The instructions for this bag are – here – and also – here. I’ve made it a good few times.

My favourite sling bag in a different green. It’s probably a bit obvious by now that I do like green.

Hopefully you can see from the picture how the bag gathers up at the shoulders to form a sort of strap. The proportions could be modified to make the bag shorter or wider.

It’s a fairly substantial bag as it is, so I wouldn’t meddle with the proportions too much. But a petite person may want a slightly smaller version.

That’s what is so nice about making your own clothes and accessories. You make them as you would want them.

I rounded the bottom corners of this particular bag to get a slight curve to the edge.

How about an evening version in a silver fabric? Or a fabric with a silver thread?

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
