11  Re: Jordy Bag - Square Bottomed Lined Bag Tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Nineightohone on: January 17, 2005 07:06:30 PM
I'm on a roll!  Okay, here's my most recently made bag. I made it back in like September but just now got to photographing it...

I used thick paperboard from a stationery box to make the bottom stiff. Despite using the stiffest pellon I could find, this still ended up floppy. I'm so frustrated with interfacing!

I made my own! Here's the new photos including the strap I had to make... They didn't have any ready made ones at Jo-anne's.

front open-the duct tape isn't as wiggly as it looks. I had the flap curled up for awhile so it'll flatten with a book or two.

rear view

inside, flap open.  I'm thinking i'll cover the entire inside of the flap in duct tape to make it look better.

I used 3 layers of clear packing tape on top, 2 layers of clear duct tape on the back, pieced it like a jordy bag but without the bottom seam.  I put in 2 layers of cardboard in the bottom only.  I lined the inside obviously with duct tape as well as edged all the rough edges.

Any extra logos or pictures are things I cut off of the big one pound or whatever bags

Thoughts? Opinions?
