This is my latest sewing project. I sewed it as a birthday gift for one of my friends. She enjoys sailing, so I thought this bag would suit her well.
The bag consists of both an outer and an inner layer. The inner layer is about half the lenght of the outer bag. The pattern was really easy to make, but when it comes to the sewing I had problems with the inner layer. It was thick and unelastic, so it was hard to handle. It seemed impossible to get rid of the wrinkles, so I just let it be. No one would see the inner layer anyway so.
- Outer bag; Awning fabric, cotton or cottonblend
- Inner bag; Synthetic marine fabric ( it gave the necessary stability to the bag bottom)
- Prym metallic Eyelets, 14mm
- Gutermann Extra-Upholstery Thread, 100% polyester
