Procedure to make the bag:
The first step is to print the mold and transfer it to the fabric with the pencil. You will cut the body of the bag and pocket. You will also cut the strips, these should be 3 cm wide.
After cutting the strips, iron their edges to mark them. This will help you sew better. You will cut 4 strips, two of canvas fabric and two of patterned fabric to decorate the strip.
The next step is to sew the pocket to the body of the bag on the machine. Double the pocket and sew its banks before cooking it to the body of the bag
This step consists of sewing the strip to the body of the canvas fabric. When sewing, look at the image how the strip is sewn, it goes from one side of the pocket to the other. The stamped part of the strip should be inside.
Now sew the printed fabric to the body of the bag at the bottom to decorate and protect the fabric. So that the fabric is not rolled, fasten with pins.
Now you will sew the sides upside down. Once the body of the bag is assembled, you must turn it to the right side as you can see in the following image.
This will be your canvas cloth bag once you have finished it. I hope this craft is very useful for you!
