|Martha bag.. (sweet fabric, eh!)|
Since I have some fabrics on hand, I thought I'd give it a try. The free pattern and instructions are here. I went to Staples to enlarge the pattern. It says to enlarge it by 200%, but I found that was a bit too big for my first bag. I used a 175% enlargement and the width of the bag is about 10" wide.
There are 7 steps to making this bag. I completed steps 1 - 6 with no problem. Then in a few simple words, step 7 was a complete stumper.
|Steps 1 - 6 were no problem.|
|Turning under 1/4 inch on both lining and main fabric, is harder than it looks.|
|I thought I could sew it from the inside... Wrong!!|
|In the end, I finished it.|
