I have been making these bags for a while now since I found the tute on sewtakeahike.I modified it somewhat by adding a loop from a pony tail hairband on the top of the band and adding a big button just below the band for closure.
I also attached my straps on the top of the bag at the pleats before attaching the band,then after attaching the band and facing, I folded up the straps and attached them to the top of the bag creating a loop(4 loops in all)
These bags are easy to make once you get the hang of it,took me a few trials before I got it right…now everybody wants one..LOL
I hope you like my creation.One of these bags is Elvis Presley,the other is a fabric with embroidered circles already on it.
Various types of fabric & lining,whatever matches the best.I get a lot of fabrics from the Salvation Army Thrift Store here real cheap.
