Fun fabrics I used.I would make these and sale them. I heard all the time how cheap the bags were at Walmart or other stores and I couldn't make mine that cheap. I needed to basically get the fabric for free to compare. I didn't want to donate my time for free.
Step 1 - Cut your fabric.
Pocket - 2 pieces cut to 5 1/2 x 7 inches.
Strap - 2 pieces cut to 36 x 2 inches. *** make the pocket and strap fabrics the same
Bag - 2 pieces cut 13 1/2 x 21 1/2 ***Use fabric that cordinates with the pocket and strap fabric.
Step 2 - Cut the iron on fleece. For the pocket and strap cut it the same size as the fabric. For the bag fabric I cut it an inch shorter 12 1/2 by 20 1/2. Near the end of sewing the bag the fabric gets very thick and my sewing machine has a hard time going through all the layers of fabric so this makes it smoother.
Step 10 - Turn pocket so it's right sides out.
Step 11 - Iron the pocket. When you iron make sure the fabric at the opening is tucked in. You can make it look like there is no hole when you iron it.
Step 14 - Pin the strap 2 inches in from the edge like the photo above.
The picture below shows how the strap is pinned at the top on one side. Then pinned on the other end of the same piece of fabric but opposite side. This makes it so the strap goes diagonally across for the girls to wear.
Step 19 - Embellish away now. You can take the flower apart like the pictures here and hot glue it onto the bag. That's what I did with this bag BUT it will get ruined when you wash it. You could put the flower on a pin so it's easy to remove. If you hot glued it on Hand wash the bag if you don't want to ruin the flower.
