The sewing part is done! The last step is to add the eyelets and connect the strap to the bag. Eyelets and rivets usually come with some tools to make the right holes in the fabric and to keep their form when hammering them into place. Add one eyelet to either side of the bag, in the middle of each flap. Stick the leather strap through one of the eyelets and connect it with two rivets to the opposing side of the bag. Do the same with the other end of the strap.
Love, love, love this bag! I think it just jumped to the top of my must-make list. One possibly very dumb question from a sewing neophyte: Vicki — You can do it! I began sewing my own clothes last year, and while no project is perfect, each one gets better.
I had some sewing experience from when I was a kid i. Thanks you so much for all the compliments! And I would love to see results when you decide on making it. Does anyone know of any good resources for leather straps like these? But I feel silly too — am I missing where the pattern is?! This would be a great hack to fancify an extra canvas totebag also—thank you for the awesome idea!!!!! Thanks for sharing this with us! The pattern has been added to the materials list.
Click on the link to download the pdf. I plan to make this bag in the very near future as well. Though Ebay is great too: I love this so much! My sewing machine better get ready for another project. What a great looking tote! Just wondering, where would you find the leather straps and eyelets from? I have a local Joann Fabrics but their website shows only pink leather straps available.
Yeah, the sewing part I am not going to be able to wrap by head around, but the bag, oh that bag! It is so lovely!
Does she have an Etsy shop? She should totally sell these! I love this bag too, I went out yesterday to buy fabric to make one of my own.
I was thinking about trying to find a second hand leather belt to use for the strap? For new straps, look on Etsy for replacement straps to Coach bags etc.
You have me convinced that I could actually make one of these. I love this bag. Thanks for much for sharing. This is a fantastic idea!
This definitely makes it seem worth the investment. I could make tons of these in different colors. Emma Yes, as the straps are attached in the last step, the rivets go through the leather strap, the outside fabric and the lining. I think you could get some nice leather reins from a saddlery shop — or find someone who is getting rid of their old ones — the leather would be nice and soft and malleable. They might be a bit wide, but you could just use bigger rivets.
What about shortening a leather dog leash? Maybe a shoe cobbler would have access to leather straps. Forgot to say — I think this bag is great!!! Thanks for sharing instructions and the pattern. It is on my To Do list, for sure. Went and bought the fabric, so excited! Or do you just sew it on straight? And by pin the seams, I mean the long part of the rectangle, the part that will be exposed once you turn everything inside out. In the light of day, reread the instructions and realized it was, in fact, a silly question.
Dewey, A question is never silly! Yep, in step 3 you sew the dark brown fabric along the long sides of the rectangle to the white canvas. Both pieces are presewn and you are just sewing the top edges together? I may just have to try my hand at making one of these market bags myself!
I just prototyped my first one, made some changes right away and sighted some I will make next time. I used denim from some old jeans for the outside and a black flower-print for the lining. A back pocket from the jeans made a great cell-phone pocket inside the bag. I top-stitched around the top edge to ensure a totally flat edge. Next one I may shorten the bag overall and add a pocket to the outside. This bag is fantastic! I love all these little projects, they might come in handy for some hand crafted christmas pressies!
The cutter tool included is useless on fabric might work better on the plastic tarping that it is intended for so I just used it to mark my spot and then made the hole with scissors, no problem. For the strap I used a strip of the same denim that I made the bag out of with the raw edges folded in on and stitched around.
What tools do I need to attach them? And they only come in gold or silver. I have three of these bags made, but no straps on them yet. Looks like they have everything you we need. Melinda, if you like you can send me pictures info renskesolkesz. Love this bag…I purchased canvas fabric for the white part, but do you have to use canvas for the dark fabric part or can you use other types of fabric?
Thanks for such a great tutorial! What a wonderful project! I have made several now and want to expand on the design; a divider, perhaps secured by velcro could make a wine carrier, pockets sewn in advance in the liner could become tool carriers or include a zipper a secure pocket.
I Love this bag — it is so wonderful. Could you help with some ideas on how to make a backpack tote that is similar to this marvelous bag? When I sew the liner and exterior together the seam is smooth, but when I reverse the liner bunches up. Any ideas about what I can do differently? Cut perpendicular to your seam, but be sure not to cut through your thread.
Hope that makes sense, and helps. I cannot figure out how to print this to scale. Can anyone offer help? When I print the pattern it comes out on one sheet of paper. Was woundering if handbags with rivots on the straps last longer. Or would it be better to sew them on?
My straps wear the fastest. I carry everything but the kitchen sink. If I use Faux leather for my handles, and secure with rivots, will they last longer? Or should I sew them on? First off, I would like to tell everyone that I am a beginner when it comes to sewing. I saw this bag and fell in love with it and knew that I had to give this bag a whirl.
I was confused when she said this but I went over to the section where it was at and I realized that Denim comes in all different colors not just blue jean. I opted for black and grey. Next, I could not find a leather strap anywhere. I decided I would just buy an old belt from a goodwill or salvation army or even a Tj Maxx. There were a couple parts that I had troubles with: First was step 2. I did not understand how to attach the bottom piece of fabric to the bag. I ended up figuring out a way.
The next step that I had troubles with was step 8. I tried to do what was said in the directions but I could not sew with the correct sides facing each other.
I had to do it the other way so that in the end the lining has the side where you have sewn. Like I said I am pretty much brand new to sewing. If there is anywhere someone can clear up those steps it would be extremely helpful. I have plenty of fabric and supplies left to make a couple more bags and I would even like to try out a couple new measurements. My bag overall ended up being 40 x 29 cm.
Hi Chelsea, I just whipped up this bag today with some fabric I had laying around the house so I thought I would pop in and offer some help: Step 2 is just top stitching. For Step 8, you probably made the same mistake I did — except I caught it while I was pinning: If your fabric is reversible, just make sure to match the pieces up before you start your sewing to ensure you have things flipped the right way. It was such a fun project, and now I know how to cut leather and put on rivets and eyelets!
Great tutorial and a wonderful bag…I shared the tutorial, and my version here: Every time I try it closes down. Does anyone know if the bag will suffer if I make the strap shorter than she calls for? I had a fun time making this bag it was pretty simple, so it made it more fun!
For the strap I think I am going to buy a leather saddle string. A quick Google search comes up with a few options. The pattern link just leads to another page that reloads everytime you click the link. Nothing downloads… So where and how to dowload the pattern? Would really like to make this cool bag! I already bought all my supplies! Will use piping, zippered pockets and recycled strap. Thanks for the fab tute!
London map fabric, faux leather bottom, key strap, piping, a ton of pockets, used a recycled belt for the strap. Will add a matching wallet and publish both on my blog. Thanks again…and again…and again…!!!! I made this bag months ago and am getting tons of demands to make and sell them!
Since this pattern was available to the public, would it be legal to produce and sell these? What I usually offer to do if I have a friend or two who is interested in a project I made is to offer a swap of skills and services, i.
Money is fleeting but beautiful things are forever, and if you have friends who can create beautiful things for you they are worth more than anything. Lovely and minimalist bag! I found a stripy navy blue thick fabric in my scrap box, dark blue jeans for the bottom and i have tons of big leather straps.
I have to find those rivet and eyelets though. Im thinking it could be made bigger to fit a macbook, or even more horizontal. Awesome tutorial for a lovely tote!
I found some canvas and dark fabric at hobby lobby. I also found the leather strap there too it was near the jewelry section though. I will definitely be making a couple more for a few friends and family!
I am having a hard time finding the rivets and eyelets in a color I like. I would love to find antique brass without having to order them online.
