What you need
1/2 yard (1/2 metre) of Fabric
You will need to cut out the following pieces.
3.75 inch (9.5 cm) wide circle for the base.
12x 10inch (30cm x 25cm) Rectangle piece for the bag.
2 straps 12 inch x 2.5 inch (30cm x 6cm)
Fold the bag section in half along the longest side to leave you with a folded bag 6 x 10 inch (15 x 25 cm). You need to sew along the 10 inch (25 cm) open side to make a tube.
Sew in the base, secure with pins first if you need to.
Hem the top of the bag around a 1 inch (2.5 cm) hem.
Fold your straps in half and sew them closed. Turn right side out.
Fix your straps in place with the seam at the back.
Note: To make a stronger bag use double the fabric.
These bags can be made from recycled fabric, recycled Jeans and even fabric sample books.
