1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Slouch bag on: November 14, 2010 11:00:38 AM


This is from the pattern "Fabric Lover's Slouch Bag" by Seams and Dreams.
http://www.seamsndreams.com/product.php?productid=95&cat=13&page=1

Goes together easily and requires only 2 yards of fabric, plus a little more if you want pockets. (I added an extra pocket on the inside.) You could also easily shorten the straps if you want to use less fabric. The exterior provides a great space for embroidery, patchwork, or any embellishment you like.

I love this bag.  Smiley

Including matching napkin, interior pockets for silverware, ice packs, and more.

Pattern by Penny Sturges, fabric by Moda. My first time using Fusi-Boo (fusible bamboo batting), which worked great.

Thread nests on the underside are often related to tension problems with the top thread. If you've cleaned and re-threaded (and make sure you re-thread with the needle in the UP position), you might have a mechanical problem that requires the help of an sewing machine repair person.

Accidentally posted this in the General Clothing forum before I realized there was a separate forum for costumes!



Made for my daughter's visit to the local Scarborough Faire.
Dress: Butterick 4571
Bag: Wubbie Bag by http://www.beecreativestudio.com

The back is laced up like a corset. I will try to get a picture of it at a later point.

You can look through the pattern selections of the major pattern manufacturers - McCall's, Butterick, Simplicity - and find "easy" or "quick sew" patterns that are good for beginners. They usually include some basic tops, simple dresses, easy skirts, and maybe some bags or aprons. Another way to gain experience and still feel like you're actually accomplishing something while you learn is to make small home goods - pot holders, place mats, coasters, etc.

Above all else, HAVE FUN. If you try to take on too difficult projects before you've got a basic sewing skill set, you're more likely to get frustrated and give up altogether.

1. Yes  Grin
2. Because you sew with knits, and because your garments will have nicely finished, professional-looking seam edges.
