I love marimekko fabric and products... (URL: http://www.finnstyle.com/blumbag.html) especially their blum bag... but the price was really out of my budget...  Cry

hence I've been wondering in the store for almost 2 weeks, just purely looking at the bag and examine it.. and reading a lot on craftster tutorial (thanks to jordy & melidomi), here's my blum..

I'm still thinking to perfect, simply to improve the strap part, when it's insert to the top, and the shape to be more curvy.

I add interface and felt material at the bottom of the bag to make it look bulky.

Overall look








The Strap with hidden zip



Inner part




My notes  Cheesy




pls comments  Wink

thank you for looking through~!

thanks for all ur comments Cheesy

oh the construction details is not 100% accurate (I made some changes along the way).  Undecided the final size is correct tho  Smiley

I add in:
1. D-ring belt loop to add the small purse
2. hidden zip area in the strap
3. the back of the bag, I use the tutorial "slit pocket" by silk81
4. two side pocket to cover the big cross I sew (my sewing is messy! Tongue)

I wanna try to sew a hidden zip pocket on the front part of the bag, been think for quite a while but still I can't figure out how

I don't usually like this kind of bag but I really LOVE yours.  All the pockets and especially the zipper pocket on the strap....so handy!!! I carry a healthy back bag because of all the pockets but now I may be able to carry a different style bag sometimes. I love your fabric too!

Thanks for the diagram.  I'll give it a shot.

Can't wait to see your creation~! I'll try to write the steps instruction soon. the top part is kind of difficult for me, my seam is expose in the inner part. so i sew with the outer fabric. ah... I should take the pic while making this bag.

This is an awesome bag!!! I love the fabric and your notes are so cool looking...like something out of a book. Cool
thanks~!!! lol wow, out of a book, I like tat haha.. Cheesy

I like to scribble in my notebook, like some awesome bag i saw in stores / on the street. I'll try to sketch it in the book. I try to make some of them but failed..  Sad

wow! nice work! I love all the pockets.

I even think your bag is cooler than the Marimekko... but that's just me.  Wink

This bag is amazing, I'm going to try to give it a shot, I think I've figured out the dimensions of everything so now I just have to try to sew it together!  I'll post pics if I can figure it out.  (Instructions would be lovely though  Smiley)  Thanks for the notes, they've been uber helpful so far!

use an invisible zipper, and install a pocket-pre-assmbly in front, I don't know if you can retro-fit it, but you never know- if you install the pocket full width the sides are hidden in the side stitching.
