Step 1 Draw a pattern and cut out the pieces


I sat in front of the jacket for a whole evening trying to decide how to cut it. I layed tissue paper on top of the jacket and outlined the approximate size and shape of my new bag. I wanted it to be big enough to hold my camera, wallet, a bottle of water and all those bits and pieces that I carry around with me. After I drew the pattern I cut the first pattern piece out of the jacket. Then I cut off the arms and opened one of the arm seams to use it for the back piece of the bag. After that I cut the rest of the jacket into 7cm wide strips for the handle and the base of the bag.
