* Library bag

Posted on June 12th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


I live ~13 blocks from the library, so I made this bag to help me lug my books back and forth. It’s the helpfully-named Library Bag pattern by Hop Skip Jump out of the Crafter’s Companion. For some reason my handles always seem to buckle up, so this time I tried 2 pieces of bias tape sewn back-to-back with some decorative stitching. Seems to have done the trick. I also pleated the pocket instead of scrunching it, since it seemed to look better with the tiny polka dot fabric I used.

My sister found me the super cool fabric. This barely made a dent in it.

    SO Cute! I don’t have the patience for bags. Then again, I’ve only tried one. Maybe I’ll try again..

    Love your blog…

    I love the pocket, I’ll bet the pleat will help hold your library card inside.
