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.
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!
You need to ask if someone wants a tutorial? 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! Anyway, I posted the tute over in my blog. Here's the link:
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!
