Fabric : Amy Butler
I'm feeling that familiar sense of accomplishment after finishing this bag. But....sighhh....still BIG on Aisha!
I made this bag using this tutorial. I like the slouchiness of it plus Aisha asked for a bag that she can sling accross the shoulder. The steps are not difficult to follow, but if you are a beginner in sewing bags and like me, just sewing your 2nd bag, this will be a challenge!
My advice would be make sure you read all instructions carefully and take a close look at the pictures. This will save you some seam ripping session. And if you plan to print the pdf tute, please print it in colour! Believe me, I learned this the hard way, one of my dang moments.
I omit the interlining in for this project mainly because I don't have it and too lazy to drive to the supplies shop and a bit impatient too lol
I have problems figuring out the dimensions. I could not foresee that it's still an adult size huge bag until I put it on Aisha to take photos, just like the tote bag before. Is there any tutorial for kid's bag out there?
Or maybe all bags I made look better on ME? Hehehe...(another chubby angle...or am I in denial??)
Aisha loves it though. She chose the fabric herself and I must say it look rather retro-ish. I heart Amy Butler! The only solution we figured out is to tie up the shoulder strap a bit to make it shorter on Aisha.
This project is far from perfect. If you look closely you'll see the wobbly stitches and some really wonky corners. But it has it's own charm and the fact that it's handmade warms my heart. Cheers!
Hanan so kepoh-ci...and the girls need a haircut!
