Reversible Fabric Bags! #tbt

 Reversible Fabric Bags!
Here's how to make a GREAT reversible bag!
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.
Put the right sides together of each fabric and sew the rounded edge...
I zig-zag the edge to prevent fraying.

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.
Line it up straight...

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.
Then cut little snips around the rounded edges.
Take care not to cut the stitches.  This will allow
 the fabric to lay flat inside that rounded edge.
Like this.
Now you are going to open up one of the straps...like this
And start pushing the entire bag through that strap.
It feels like it's not going to fit, just work it out slowly...
Keep going...
Until you get it all turned right side out!
Yay!
Work it out so that all 4 straps are out and flat...
and stuff one of the fabrics inside the bag.
All right sides showing!
Should look like this.
Now, this part can be tricky.
Take the top 2 straps...yellow chevron and pin them together
 (right sides together).
Then take the next layer and pin them together.
Continue onto the the back 2 layers.
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.
Then iron the straps.
Then sew that edge all the way around the bag straps...
Finished! 
Isn't it adorable?
You'll want to make a bunch now!
I got this bag insert from Amazon for $4...and it fits perfectly!
And matches!
  I used up lots of scraps and made 12 bags!
