Hey all,

I've made a shoulderbag that I'd like to share. It has a Jordy-style bottom (thanks Jordy! Smiley) and a thick brown cord as a strap. I've used brown canvas on the outside and green corduroy as lining. On the front panel I used an iron-on transfer, it is a concept drawing for a new attraction in the Dutch themepark De Efteling. It's a small walkthrough building with a scene from The Little Matchseller inside. (They've just finished it: http://cakili.image.pbase.com/image/36547914.jpg)

It fits my huge 'Table, Donkey and Stick'-wallet perfectly Smiley

Compared to the real thing at De Efteling. Smiley

EDIT

I added a small tutorial on how I did the flap closure, as Choirgirl asked. It's really quite simple!

http://www.pbase.com/ilonavg/image/37566871.jpg

1. Take two small pieces of fabric, one the same as the outside of your bag, and one the same as the lining of the bag. Pin them with the right sides together.

2. Draw the outline of your flap onto the fabric with chalk.

3. Sew along the line, leave the bottom open.

4. Cut around the flap, leaving a tiny seam allowance around it.

5. Turn the flap rightside out and push the seams outward with your finger. Above image shows side view, front view and back view of the flap. After turning, you can sew along the bottom of the flap or you can leave it open. It doesn't really matter.
Also, draw a line for the button hole.

6. Sew the buttonhole. I can't tell you how to do it, because I don't really know how to do it myself. My sewing machine has an option for it, but I haven't figured out yet how to get tidy and neat results. Smiley
At this point, also sew along the borders of the flap, so that it lays nice and flat. Use thread in a matching color and make tiny seams.

7. Now you have a flap! Sandwich it inbetween the lining and the outside of the bag like you do with the handles in a Jordy bag, or just sew the flap into the inside of the bag, like I did. Mark the spot where the button should be, sew on the button and tadah: a nice little flap closure!

Hey all,

Here is a canvas bag I made with an iron-on transfer on it. I used sheets for dark fabric from Easy Computing (don't know if it's available outside the Netherlands) and it worked much better than I had expected. I was worried that the transfer would crack when turning the bag, but the transfer came out really bendable and leathery.

Ilonavg, your purse looks so classy! The green corduroy complements the front appearance - and gives it a rich texture. Great job!
