Here's how to make a GREAT reversible bag!
I got the pattern here from Very Purple Person.
Just print it off and tape it together...then cut it out.
You'll need 2 contrasting fabrics for ultimate cuteness.
(I didn't sew in any darts...)
Cut 2 of each fabric on the fold to make this shape.
Do that to both...like this
Take 1 of the fabrics and turn it right side out.
Then fit that one inside the other one...this way the "rightsides" are together.
Now you are going to sew the 2 layers together.
Around the "neckline" and the "armpits" and the "backline"
Leave the top 3 inches of the straps unsewn.
Take care not to cut the stitches. This will allow
the fabric to lay flat inside that rounded edge.
Now you are going to open up one of the straps...like this
and stuff one of the fabrics inside the bag.
Should look like this.
Take the top 2 straps...yellow chevron and pin them together
(right sides together).
Then take the next layer and pin them together.
Your bag should look like this so far.
Then sew a stitch across the straps where you have them pinned!
Then you just need to pin under the edges of the straps.
Isn't it adorable?
You'll want to make a bunch now!Amazon for $4...and it fits perfectly!
