I made this bag for my nephew a long time ago…but realized that I never posted the pictures of it. Here are all the pieces that I cut out.
The first thing I did was cut out a “K” for my nephew and glued it to the “pocket” with fabric glue.
Then I stitched the letter to the pocket.
I sewed the pocket with a back, turned it inside out, and pinned the base of the pocket to the fabric for the bag.
I did this so that when the library card was in the pocket, it wouldn’t get lost. The pocket was made the right size for a library card.
Then I sewed a lining and the outside of the bag. I turned the lining so that the right sides would be together for the lining and the bag.
Then I sewed some handles for the bag. After I sewed the side, I turned them inside out.
Then I pinned the lining, the bag, and the handles together to sew. I sewed almost all the way around the bag…leaving a small hole where I could turn everything
Then I stitched the hole together.
All done and ready for books!
