 I was trying to make a bag that I found on a magazine, well I have finished it, I know, it doesnít look exactly like the magazine, but still I really liked the way it turn out to be. I leave the tutorial, sorry, Iím not very good writing tutorials but Iíll try to do my best.



T U T O R I A L

1.-  Cut 2 A, 2 B and 2 C, and 2 A for lining.
B has to be double the length of the inside curve.

2.- Fold B in half  lengthwise.
Make the gathering along the edge with basting stitches.

3.- Mark center of A and B
Pin gathered B to center and corners of A right sides facing
stitch around the edges of inside curve
Topstitch to finish
Do the same for other side of the bag.

4.- join 2 A right sides facing and stitch around outside curve
turn, and attach lining the easiest way you know.
(sorry about this part, it was a bit complicated to attach the lining and I canít explain it in English)

5.- Fold C in half  lengthwise, stitch around the seam edges, leave one side open to turn, turn and iron to make your handles.
insert the handles into the gathered tube made from B, make a bow, and ďtaranĒ your bag is ready.

Sorry I told you Iím not very good with Tutorial, hope it works for you, Iíll try to take pictures of the process to explain better.

Thanks for the tutorial! Your bag looks great - I love the contrast of the plain bag against the printed fabric handle!

Thank you, thank you!!! I'm glad you could follow the tutorial.. It's hard for me to explain in English, I forget the terms and right sawing words. I even forget in Spanish.. ha ha ha .  I would love to see your creations, maybe we can exchange tips, something you found out when you follow the tutorial..

I really liked this bag, thank you for your comments

i love your bag! thanks for the tut, it's easy to understand.

how does it look with stuff inside? do you have a picture of that? i hope you don't mind me asking, but i like it so much, i want to make one of myself.
and another question: is there a closure?

i'm sorry for asking 2984 questions, but that's because i love the bag so much. :-D

you outdid the original magazine design! I love the contrast handle - it makes the whole "tie a colorful scarf to your purse" trend easier and more functional. Awesome job!

I didn't add any closure but If I did it will be a magnetic snap closure. sorry but I don't have a pic with stuff inside.

i know it's been a while.
i started making it Ö and then moved. so now there's a half bag somewhere and i can't find it.
haha. but that's me. i started making it and then couldn't find a closure that's safe enough for being around in the city without things getting stolen (paranoid because of bad experience in the past=
i will let you know if i find the bag or a solution for the closure-problem Smiley
