I didn't check there. I love potter's house. I should have checked there before buying them online.

Thanks Jeepers! You're a lot of help Smiley I'll name my next bag after you.

I mostly make bags. I'm using a sewing machine. My last bag seems to be too streachy for the fifteen-twenty pounds I have to carry around.

I'm  somewhat new to sewing. I always go to the fabric store and pick out the wrong stuff. Everything I get is super streachy.

Does anyone have a fabric type that isn't really streachy? I'm fabric types illiterate


Thanks for any help! Grin

I've been working on this for a week, well only like 4 days total. It was my first, non-purse bag. I think it turned out okay. I've never done a bag all by myself, so this is something new. The outside fabric is denim, but it is streachy  Embarrassed The inside is a pink cotton with white snowflakes on it ( $1.00/yd at Wally World).


The topstiching isn't as crooked as it looks. I'm not sure what i'm going to put on the flap yet though. It's kind of plain. Anyone have ideas?


Here's a close up of the two pockets.


Here is the inside. The front of the bag is toward the top of the picture.

I'm still waiting on the buckle slide (triglide buckle)in order to finish this. If I have something in it, the strap streaches down to where the bottom of the bag is at my ankles. It's insane Smiley

Thanks for looking.

Amazing! You did a wonderful job.

I love the material and the design. Did you use a tutorial off here or a store bought pattern? Does it have any pockets?

I love it!

Wow! I like them both! They look perfect. I wish I was that talented. Mine would look all lopsided.

Excellent!  Grin

I needed 1.5" metal. I found them on ebay under triglide buckles, not slide buckles. Thank you both so much!

That's exactly what I am looking for. Thanks for the idea. I will check there sometime. I didn't know there was a Hancock fabric store in Athens.

Thanks!  Smiley
