My DIY OOT bags
Posted 09 April 2010 - 07:34 PM
I used a combination of these two tutorials:
Next I refolded the materials so that each fabric was folded in half over itself and sewed the long sides together. I made sure to stop short on the liner fabric so that I could turn the right side out.
I then turned the fabric right-side out and sewed the opening that I had left. Hopefully you can see the stitching, I know it's hard with the brown thread and brown fabric!
I stuffed the liner inside the outer part of the bag and the easy part was done!

I knew that I wanted to sew a pretty big hem but I wanted the handles to still be sewn near the top of the bag without the stitching going through to the other side. I decided to flip the handles over to the other side and sew another strip near the bottom of the squares. I know this sounds confusing, but I wanted to make sure those handles were going to stay!
So then I flipped over the edges and measured out 3/4". I believe I actually sewed the hem at 5/8". The pins in the handles are where I had previously sewn the handles to the bag again. If I had waited to sew them after making the hem, it would have gone straight through the bag.
Oh I had also made my own tags, based on the following tutorial, aren't they cute?
Well that's it, hope it wasn't too confusing! I really like how they came out, I hope people will actually use them!

I love the "made by Melissa" tag. Super cute touch.
