Need a fun hand sewing project?Felt

Another fun variation of this sew tote bag instructions.
This is a easy hand sewn book bag to hold some of your books it also
makes for great gifts.
First you need to pick out your own sewing fabric, you also have to
pick the measurements you want your book bag to be but make sure you
make your bag a inch bigger for the inside.
I did my book bag ten inches high and 12 inches wide. Turn your
pieces of fabric inside out and sew neat even stitches. After you
have sewn all three sides you'll need fold the top of the bag and
sew it so you won't have fringes on both sides.
Next you'll need to measure the handles to your book bag,and again
you'll need to add a extra inch to the handles. I made my handles 22
inches long. Then you will need to fold on side of the handle and
sew it and do the same with the other strap. After you finish sew
them on to the bag.
For the Flower
you will need a big button and a small piece
of different colored fabric. Use a fabric marker (Or a regular
marker.) if it bleeds through the fabric just cut the inside of the
flower. Next choose the spot you want the flower located and sew it
on with the button.
And now you have a book bag to put your books in.
can sew your own tote bag in various sizes. Experiment if you would
like a different size.
