I made my first bag! (Unless fanny packs count...) It's basically a Jordy bag, but with a longer strap and a flap on the front. I also added a zip pocket under the flap and snaps to close it. Onto the pictures!


The bag.


Inside the front flap.


Detail of zipper (my second ever) and snaps.


Interior view.


It was made on a special request for someone, so I no longer have it. Sad But I'm making one for my sister next. Hopefully it'll be easier since I'm not doing two different fabrics on the exterior. Roll Eyes

Very nice job.  I like the fabrics you use.  Sister is cute too.

how did you add a flap? I mean i'd assume pretty much the same as a strap... but which way should the regular fabric/lining be facing? I'm really bad about visualizing... yours looks great!

I actually took the ridiculously easy way out on my flap. I sewed a square of fabric, then ironed and sewed around the edges so it didn't puff up or anything. Then I just sewed the worst side directly to the back of the bag. I could take a picture for you later, if that'd help you out.

So, my dad hi-jacked the camera for the time being, so I decided to use MS Paint to try and make things clear. If this doesn't help at all, I'll just take a picture as soon as I get the camera back.


First, pretend my drawing doesn't look like a 2-year-old drew it. Now, the red is where I stitched all around the outside of the flap before I attached it. The blue underneath the red at the bottom is where I actually stitched it onto the back. You can even kind of see in the second to last picture where the flap was sewn in relation to the interior.
