You’ve chosen your outfit for the day – it’s stylish, sophisticated and rates maximum on the “wow” factor scale… what a shame your trusty, reliable and slightly dog-eared bag lets you down. But not anymore! Here at Sewing for Beginners we have found a fun instructional video that shows you how to sew a bag using patchwork shapes.
This video demonstrates the sewing of the bag from beginning to end in easy-to-follow steps. The presenters chatter along as they sew throughout the video explaining what they are doing and why they are doing it. Not just that, they have packed the video full of handy hints and tips for any sewing project as they go along.
The patchwork bag is fully lined and has an inside pocket as well as shoulder strap handle and button-up top. Because there is no pattern – you cut the shape free-hand – you can design this bag in any size and shape to suit your own creative flare. All you need to make it is material, scissors, sewing machine, button, thread and the video.
