Looking for a new favorite day bag?
It’s currently one of my favorite bags. I get compliments on it all the time and have started making ones for my friends. And here’s how you can make your own!
My strap will be 6” x 30”
Cut two pieces of your strap broadcloth that is three times as wide as you want the strap to be by 30”. Fold the edges in so they meet at the center of the strap and iron. Fold one of the short edges in about a half an inch and iron. Now fold the whole strap in half and iron. Sew around the edges of the whole strap.
Sew around the edge of the bag with a quarter inch seam allowance. Leave a space on the short side that is large enough to flip it right side out.
With the outer fabric facing up, fold the top left and bottom right corners to the opposite sides making a 45-degree angle of the outer corners.
Now fold the center square diagonally so the right side is across from the left. This should create two right angles along the bottom of the bag.
