thanks so much for this tute! I've been so apprehensive about bag making, but your instructions were very easy to follow so I decided to finally go for it! I needed a large bag, and a large bag is what I got. I think it might be just a bit too
big, but overall, I'm super happy considering it's my first bag ever! I made a few mods because the fabric I used was so thick, almost like denim. I topstitched the pleats for a couple inches into the body of the bag and also topstitched the yoke to tame the seam allowance. I embellished the strap with ribbon instead of lining it and I used gold rings to connect the strap to the bag. I wanted to add an inside zip pocket but decided to take it easy, lol. So I just added a large pocket and I made a small zippy pouch to hold the essentials.. I didn't line the pouch, though. Enough talk, now onto the pics. . .
the lining and the large pocket with my little pouch in it:
and an action shot! woo hoo!:
thanks again! I already cut out the fabric for my next one! I love this tute!
