I also top stitched the flap to help keep it flat and even.
The handles in the pattern did not seem long enough or in proportion with the size of the bag, so I made extra strap sections and added rings to help add to the length. The straps were also top stitched to add strength and texture.
When the ties are undone the bag looks more like a tote bag and is actually really big!
An inside view of the bag when the ties are undone.
This is a view of the base of the bag. I want to make another version but slightly smaller. I have a smaller charm pack upstairs which would be ideal for this.
I have been busy at school this week so I have not uploaded any new pictures as i tend to do them in batches but I shall be back with further offerings.
Has anyone else had a go at making a bag like this one?xx
