So, would you need to stick to the exact pattern of the morsbag, or could it be changed (or thrown out all together) as long as the size is similar to that pattern and still functions as a reusable bag?

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

You would need to stick pretty closely to the pattern; one of the fun parts of this swap is seeing how differently all the bags look in the gallery, when they start with the same pattern. You could make small adjustments in length, width, or length of the handles; but it should be an unlined bag with french seams.

I just made one, as a sample to try, not to scale. (finished size of this sample bag is 7-1/2" x 12") I had some scraps whispering my name and i said ok, i'll patch work ya!



the horizontal seam is my french seam, but I should have done a skinny hem first, and when I turned it inside out (last seaming) should have been wider. I ended up ripping it out and doing a 5/8" seam to encase the first seaming. ** Go read Leslie's blog about the scant 1/4" seam and generous 1/4" seam. You will understand why my first attempt at the french seam gave my bag a raggy look (tho it might be nice for some projects)



you can see the raw edge on the right side cuz i didn't make that last seam wide enough.



redone, looks much better Smiley



my scrappy skinny morsbag. And now I know how to make french seams Smiley

Good job, rscowtown! Your finished bag looks great, and now that you know how to do the French seam, the bag for your partner will be great too!
