that is so beautiful, I tried to modify it into a simple purse (backpacks aren't allowed in the hallways of our school, but I still need something cute to hide my calculator in). everything was going well until I realized I have no way of keeping this sack together. I went to the store and got magnetic snaps after having assembled the sides and the strap/bottom thing  (I'm way smart like that), and needless to say they will not be helping me with this project. oh, and a zipper is out of the question, too.
so my two options for securing the flap/the bag:
a) normal snaps, like rickrackruby called for IN THE FIRST PLACE. but I've never installed any before...
b) a giant button. but I've never sewn a buttonhole before!

I'm very ashamed of my horrible crafting powers.

sheesh. awesome tute. I refuse to accepts that school is starting soon though

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

Why, whatever are you talking about? School is not starting soon. School, in fact, will not be starting at all this fall. Or ever. *laughs like maniac*


This bag really is beautiful. I'm just wondering where I can get ties... and sewing skills... Ties are really so expensive. Looks like I'll be bookmarking this page for "someday." Great job, though. ^^

MMMmmm... summer.

My daughter and I made this bag together this weekend (she's 9) and we had to make a few alterations because 1. Our fabric mecca doesn't have magnetic snaps anymore and 2. Ties at our used clothing store were $1.99 and the cheapest price they would give me was $1.50 each.  This was a learn to sew some more project (and those used ties smelled kinda funny) so I cheaped out and called my brothers and raided my husband's closet for old ties netting only 9 ties.  We sewed some very strong magnets into the lining and they work just fine and only used ties for the gusset and front, using fabric for the back.  The bag turned out great thanks to rickrackruby's fabulous tutorial and we had a lot of fun doing it together.  I have an old Kenmore which worked fine and we only broke one needle.  My daughter is so proud and got many compliments from her friends and friends' moms.  We made a necktie skirt for her doll with the scraps.  I will post pictures next week and am looking forward to seeing how everyone else does.  Cheesy

Hi Offkeybandit,

You can try either adding a buttton and a buttonhole or it's not too late for the magnetic snap. 

If you just open up one of the seams so that you can slide your hand inside I think you can still install the the snap parts. 

I can't tell you how many times I've been sewing up my bag and I realize that I have forgotten to add the second half of the snap! 

Quinston, I am so anxious to see your bag!
