Sorry there are no pictures, i will be sure to include them as soon as I get my digital camera fixed. I am not feeling too well today, so i took advantage of the fact that I can sit on the computer. Sorry if this is a little confusing. Let me know how your go's turn out.

Bookbag Tutorial
Bookbag Tutorial

1.   Cut your patterns (newspaper or tissue paper will do. I usually use newspaper.)


2.   Cut your fabric
         cut 2 of body of each of the following:
               main fabric
         cut 1 of bottom piece of each of the following:
               main fabric
         cut 2 of side pieces of each of the following:
               main fabric
         cut 1 of outside pocket of just the main fabric.
         cut 1 of flap of each of the following:
               main fabric
         cut 1 of strap of each of the following:
               main fabric
         Cut 1 of the inside pocket of either main fabric or lining depending on the look you are going for.
3.   Iron Interfacing to all outside pieces except the outside pocket.
4.   Sew outside pocket to the body positioned in desirable spot.
5.   Sew side pieces to the body, wrong sides together.
6.   Sew bottom piece to the body, wrong sides also together.
7.   Sew corner of side pieces to the corners of the bottom piece.
8.    Sew other body piece to other pieces, wrong side out.
9.   Do the same with lining pieces skipping steps 3 & 4.
10.   Remember to sew inside pocket to the inside-back lining peice... on the correct side.
   11.    Next you want to put right side of bag together with wrong side of lining and sew together. Remember to leave a hole to pull fabric through.
12.    Pull fabric through, close hole, attach straps (positioned where desired) and sew around top giving bag a nice finish.
13.    Viola you should be finished!
