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

    To start off with, you are going to want to cut out the shapes to the left. The number in the circle indicates how many pieces of each shape you want.

    The first shape is the body of the bag, so make this as big or as small as you want, the rest of the pieces are based on the size of the body.

    The triangle fits into the sides of the bag (you will see what this looks like in step 4) The length of the triangle should be about an inch longer then the distance from the top of the "body shape" to the corner before the curve.

    The bottom shape is the flap on the bag. This should be long enough to fold over the bag and hang, the length is really up to you

    Now you are going to take the second fabric to make the fringe. Cut out two of these half-moon shaped pieces. 1 should fit along the bottom of the body while the other should be shaped to fit along the flap

    Take the two body pieces and the larger fringe piece and sandwich them all together. Stitch the pieces together from the point of one curve to the point of the other (in the image it is where the fringe begins and ends). Once it is all stitched together you can cut the fringe into it.

    Now you are going to put the sides of the bag in. Take the two triangles and stitch one into each of the open sides. You will want to leave the raw edges on the outside and visible so that the fabric folds in rather then out. You can finish the edge if you want, or leave it raw.

    Once all the pieces are together, hem the top so that it is clean and everything is equal.

    Take the flap piece and add the fringe on the same way you did in step 3.

    Once the fringe is added and cut, you can attach the flap to the body of the purse.

    Next you want to grab your button or snaps (whatever you decide to use) and secure them to the flap and body of the bag so that the bag will stay closed. I used these snaps from Jo-ann Fabrics. They where easy to put on kept the bag closed really well.

    Finally, after adding the snaps, I took a long strip of the patterened fabric and made a long strap. I folded the strap in half and added it to the back of the body bag.
