Bias Tape bag

I ran into this tutorial for a bias tape bag and wanted to make one up as an example bag. I will be on vacation next week and my grand niece is visiting. I was thinking this might be a good bag to make with her. It is a breeze to make, I made my own bias tape and lined both the bag and the handles with fusible fleece to give the whole thing more body.

I added a pocket to the inside and found a nice yellow vintage button for the pocket closure. The bag is probably a bit too large for a pre-teen. But this way I will have something to show her and she can decide if she wants to make one up and what size would work for her.

  1. My neice came last week and she made one of Heather Bailey's headbands while she was here. She's 15 but it still took a couple of hours and it was nice to spend some time with her sewing. :o) Isn't it nice to bond with other girls/women while sewing?
