  • How to make a shoulder bag. Reversible Bag - Step 1

    Sew the bottom and sides of each set. My bag has a rounded bottom and a dart, Charlie bag has straight edges.

    If you use my pattern, sew the darts before sewing the bottom and sides of bag.

    Put set B in set A, right sides together, and sew around the straps. Stop stitching about 20 cm before the tops of the straps. If your machine has reverse stitch, use it on each end of stitchings to secure it.

    Sew the straps of each set together.I often sew the straps absent-mindedly and then found out that I've attached them wrong!

    So please make sure that you sew each strap to the strap beside it, NOT the strap that is in front of it.
