And so I did. SUPER EASY!!!What you will need:
Fabric for your bag/purse
contrasting fabric or ribbon for handles
Fabric scraps in colors, patterns, and prints for decorative patches
First you need to decide on how big you want your bag. I made my bag for a little girl at church to carry her bible, paper, crayons, and other necessities in. My fabric was 11 inches wide and 22 inches long for a finished bag of 10 1/2 in. by 10 in. My fabric for the handles was 2 in. wide by 25 in. long for finished handles of 3/4 in. wide and 24 in. long.
Run a second seam, to secure the handles and folded edge of the bag, along the top of the bag.
Get your scrap pieces of contrasting, printed, and patterned fabric. Cut the Wonder Under to fit your pieces and, following application directions, iron the Wonder Under to your fabric. You now have fabric with a paperbacking that you can draw upon.
Now gather all of your fabric stickers into a bag. Include instructions of how to iron the fabric stickers to the bag you made (see second part of instructions for applying the Wonder Under) and you have a DIY Design a Bag that any child with imagination and things to carry will enjoy.
Thanks Shannon! Everybody get busy making your Sew Homegrown projects - when you make one, upload it to the flickr pool so we can all see what you have made!
