Happily you do not have to do much fitting when making a bag for your sister. A while ago I posted on Instagram this photo – asking “What do you think my next project will be”. There are some clever sewists out there that guessed the answer correctly. (Sorry, no prize for the winner!)
My sister wanted a bag that was 5″ deep, 11″ wide and 8.5″ tall. No pattern? No problem! Then she let me run with the idea – and so was born the “TA-DA BAG“!
First I drew out my pattern pieces and taped them together to get an idea on the size.
