This kit is perfect for novice bag makers like me. It came with pre-cut, pre-punched materials and instructions. It’s a simple grey felt bag with monochrome flowers.
>Aligning the holes and stitching the reinforced handle.
>Stitching the front pattern and the sides, right sides together.
>These crucial square cut-outs at the bottom corners give the bag its 3D shape.
>Pressing them together
>Stitching it close. I’m glad there were pre-punched holes so I know where the needle should go. Great for beginners like me.
>Reinforcing the corners.
>Finished! Turn it back to right side out.
>Would have loved to add lining to conceal the knots and stitching on the inside of the bag. However it’s not included in the kit…perhaps I’ll learn to line a bag some day. I’ve got books teaching how to do it, but I’ve never tried.
I’m quite happy with this – my first ever handmade bag :)
