Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you the awesome bag I made using Anna Maria Horner’s free pattern called the Right Turn Bag. Not only is this project easy and fun, you can learn a great way to construct the front panels of the bag, resulting in a dynamic array of color and pattern.
Hey dudes! I’m Julia, your guest tutorial maker for this week! If you’ve come into the store recently, I’m the one with purple hair who’s more than likely wearing a comic book teeshirt.
Today’s tutorial is a decently sized tote bag, perfect for trips to the farmer’s market or a day on the beach.
Finished dimensions of the bag are 12″x17″x6″ with a 12″ strap.
In this post we are going to go over a couple tricky parts of making the the tote. This bag already has great instructions to follow but we are here to help if you have any problems along the way, so don’t hesitate to ask us any questions that you have about any part of the pattern.
Alright so by now you should have the inside of your tote done, which was pretty simple right? Okay now we are going to move on to constructing the outside of the bag, which looks much more complicated then it actually is.
Now you have 4 pieces to constrict the outside of your bag: 2 pocket pieces and 2 exterior pieces. They suggest that you use fusible facing on the exterior pieces to help your bag stand better.
