What you need

1/2 yard (1/2 metre) of Fabric
Sewing machine
Pins
Scissors

Instructions

You will need to cut out the following pieces.

3.75 inch (9.5 cm) wide circle for the base.

12x 10inch (30cm x 25cm) Rectangle piece for the bag.

2 straps 12 inch x 2.5 inch (30cm x 6cm)

Step 1:

Fold the bag section in half along the longest side to leave you with a folded bag 6 x 10 inch (15 x 25 cm). You need to sew along the 10 inch (25 cm) open side to make a tube.

Step 2:

Sew in the base, secure with pins first if you need to.

Step 3:

Hem the top of the bag around a 1 inch (2.5 cm) hem.

Step 4:

Fold your straps in half and sew them closed. Turn right side out.

Step 5:

Fix your straps in place with the seam at the back.

Note: To make a stronger bag use double the fabric.

These bags can be made from recycled fabric, recycled Jeans and even fabric sample books.
