*Semi-tut added on page 3.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=90069.msg855538#msg855538

I needed a new bag for school & saw this foldover bag on urbanoutfitters.com...

& it became inspiration for my newest bag:





I had to take it apart two times because first I made the strap too short, then I decided that I needed something to weigh the foldover part down, thus adding the big floppy bow. Thanks for looking.  Cheesy

i had a similar idea a while ago, but not for a big floppy fabulous bow bag like yours! :]

my idea was to create a smaller, handbag type bag (i was thinking leather or another sturdy fabric) and have the top fold over to create a clutch! :] i still havent tried it out yet... maybe soon though.

good job on your bag! now youll be the envy of all your schoolmates.

I'm in love with all the coppery-tweedy goodness!  Your colorway is far more sophisticated, with contrasting fabric textures, yum...and the bow....don't get me started!  I must say that I would love a short tutorial, just covering the basics...unless you go into production.... Wink

Thank you all for the wonderful feedback! I don't plan on going into production, that's way too much work for me. Besides, it's only every once in a while that I actually come up with something I'm really very proud of.  Undecided

Here's a quick little semi-tut for the basics of the bag. If you can't see because of the resizing, there's a link underneath the picture.


http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y270/vladimirwed/SCHTUFF/bagtut.jpg

*Keep in mind this tutorial was made assuming you know how to assemble a bag with gussets (that's basically all it is, anyway). If not, check out this tutorial by gloriana.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2684.0

If you have any questions or if there is anything you need for me to clear up, feel free to ask! I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you for the comments! I haven't checked back on this post in a while, I've been caught up in the Clothing forum.

Just a quick question.. what weight of interfacing did you use?
I didn't use interfacing. I figured the tweed was sturdy enough since I didn't hold too much weight in my bag. Plus, I discovered that you can't iron tweed, & I only have fusible interfacing. Heh. I guess it just depends on how sturdy you need your bag to be.

can you please give the size of the patterns?
I measured according to what I needed in my bag, & those are long gone. I made it big enough to fit a standard 1.5" binder & some paperbacks, then I added about 2/3 of the height measurement on for the foldover.

I hope that helps.
