Oh, this is just lovely! The pattern really is great, and I love the fabrics you used! How did you make that decorative flower thingy??

You can find a tutorial on how to make the flower yoyo here:

Have fun making it!  Wink

The bag pattern is from Sweet Pea Totes.  It can be purchased as an eBook. You can view their site here:  http://sweetpeatotes.blogspot.com/.   I highly recommend it as the instructions and photos are very detailed and clear.

It was the first time I ever spent for a pattern...and all I can say is that it was worth every cent.  I just love how my bag turned out!  Grin

I promised myself I wouldn't waste any fabric.  I used only 3 fat quarters even if I wasn't really meant to.  With a little bit of ingenuity, it can be done. 

Hope you all like it!

can you please tell me the dimensions of the finished bag? I could not get the directions for it after subscribibg to the newsletter. I emailed them and have  not had a reply. I think I can figure this out if I know the  measurements. I think I may unsubscribe, if I don't hear from them tomorrow. I'm discouraged.
Thanks in advance.

My finished bag dimensions are as follows:
Top edge - 11"
Bottom edge - 15"
Height - 8 1/4"
Bottom depth - 2"

The handles started off as 2 1/2 x 20" strips, while the loop was a 3x13" strip. Also, the back panel is just one fabric, unlike the front.

Hope that helps.

By the way, I decided to change the buttons to self-covered ones.  I like the results better. What do you think?

Hello there! I was surfing the net this morning and chanced upon the website www.youcanmakethis.com.  Signing up for their newsletter, I got some freebies, including full instructions on how to make "The Debut" Purse from Kimberbell Kids.  The step-by-step instructions and photos were super clear and what was great about making the bag was that it only required 3 fat quarters!  I managed to finish one, squishing my sewing in between cooking dinner and washing the dishes.
Here's my version......hope you get inspired to make your own!  Cheesy





157  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Soft Sewing Bag TRANSFORMED into a Hand Bag on: March 28, 2008 04:07:08 PM
Hello again! The idea of transforming the sewing bag into something else has been on my mind since I first made one.  So here it is...







I added d-rings and a short strap.  Isn't it cute?  Grin This is for my 10-year old daughter.

In case you haven't seen the original sewing bag post, here's the link.  It includes a tutorial link as well.

There were a few errors in my tutorial and had to edit.  It's all good now (I hope).  Sorry about that! Embarrassed

You need to ask if someone wants a tutorial?  Shocked This is Craftster right? We looooove our tutorials - for some of us it's how we learned to sew!! (me included.  I owe almost everything to Craftster tutorials and tv shows!)
I would love to see one ... and I would make it as soon as I could!  I love to make functional stuff!


I really wanted to put up a tutorial...was just fishing for people to ask me to! Roll Eyes
Anyway, I posted the tute over in my blog.  Here's the link:

http://pinoyinoz.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-make-soft-sewing-bag.html

Let me know what you think, guys.  I'd love to see your own creations!! Grin

Hi again and thanks for the lovely comments!  Wink

The finished bag is about 8 1/2" long, 4 1/2" wide and 4" deep.  The measurements were taken in its "stuffed" state (as in the photos).

To all those with no zipper foot...just wanted to say that all is not lost!  I don't have one at the moment but still managed to make a decent zipper attachment with this project.  I do plan, however, to purchase one real soon.

Anyone interested in a tutorial?  Just ask and I will try my best to deliver!

Thanks again! Grin
