Yule is closing up and I needed a present for my aunt. Instead of buying some rubbish she won’t ever use, I chose to make her a simple bag. (Everybody seems to be making bags nowadays, haha!) Good for the environment, good for my consience, good for the pink-loving side of my aunt. It’s reversible too, in case she’s in a white-and-pink period rather than pink-and-white ;)
A very easy to make project, constructed out of four rectangular fabric pieces for the body and four strips for the, er, straps. There would be a few tutorials here at BS, telling how to make the flat bottom, but I can’t seem to find any… :/ It’s the turn-the-corner-45-degrees-and-sew-across-technique, anyways. Fairly common solution, it would seam. (Ha! See what I did there?!… :[)
