Knitting Bag Instructions
1 18 x 27 from both print and canvas
1 18 x 14 from both print and canvas (makes 4 pockets on the outside, if you want them deeper, extend the 14 measurement 2 for every inch of pocket. Keep in mind that the bag is 10 tall.)
Fold this piece in half (print side together) so you have an 6.5 x 18 Iron crease as reference line. Open, measure 2.5 on either side of center line and mark a line parallel to the center line ( I fold and iron there to make a line). Measure 3 in from un sewn edges and mark a line perpendicular to the center line on both edges. ( Between these lines is the width of your bag)
Fold the 18 x 27 print piece in half with wrong sides facing to make a 14 x 18 rectangle. Iron crease as reference line.
Open and align the center lines of the two piece Burberry Outlet Online s with right sides of print facing each other and pin together. You should have a 13 piece of canvas ( backed with print) centered on a 27 piece of print fabric. Sew along the marks on the canvas piece to attach the canvas to the print and make the bottom of the outside pocket and corner of bag.
You should now have two pockets 4 deep x 12 long. Decide how many and what size pockets you want on your bag and sew the canvas to the print fabric as desired. (I made one more line perpendicular to the center line so that I had a 7 and a 5 pocket). (Keep in mind that you will have 2 2.5 pockets on each end of the bag when it gets sewn up)
Fold in half with canvas on the inside, align edges of canvas, and pin all layers together. Sew along the 14 side seams with 1/2 allowance.
Iron the bag flat. (This is where I would Burberry Outlet Online probably cut 2 sided fusible interfacing in two 17 x 10 squares and attach to print fabric above the sewn line to help keep the lining in place later. But I haven done it, so it could be a complete failure.)
Now fold the bag so that the side seam and center fold are aligned and make a mitered corner 2.5 deep. If everything went well, the lines that hold the pocket on should cross at the corner of the miter. See this tote bag tutorial for a picture of the mitered corner. Sew across the corner ( should be 5 across) to create the width of the bag.
Turn right side out, iron as needed, and set aside.
Sew one 18 x 7 print and one canvas piece right sides together along just the 18 edges with Burberry Outlet Online 1/2 seams. Turn, iron and sew 1/4 from the edges just sewn. Repeat for the other two 18 x 7 pieces.
Measure 3 in from un sewn edges and mark a line on each edge of both the 18 x 6 pieces.
Decide the size you want your pockets to be and mark those lines as well.
Fold the 18 x 27 canvas piece in half with right sides facing to make a 14 x 18 rectangle. Iron crease as reference line.
Open, measure and mark a line 2.5 from the center line on each side.
Align edge of 18 x 6 pieces, with print facing outward, on the 2.5 lines on the right side of canvas. Pin in place.
Sew the bottom of the 18 x 6 pieces to the canvas fabric
Sew along the marked lines on the small pieces.
Fold in half with pockets on t Burberry Outlet Online he inside, align edges of pockets, and pin all layers together. Sew along the 14 side seams with 1/2 allowance.
Repeat the corner mitering with the lining.
Iron as necessary
turn it upside down, put something heavy in the bag, or otherwise ensure that the corners are aligned and the bottoms are touching. Pin in place.
Although I didn do this until the end, this is probably the best time to sew the bottoms together. It is a tricky proposition, but I managed to sew over the stitching on the outside pocket that defines the edge of the bag in order to hold the lining to the bag.
