I have busy constructing photo tutorials for my students at school as no matter how much I show them, the instant they move away to make it I hear cries of 'MISS want do I do now???'.
So hopefully these will help and I hope they'll help you too. Apologies for the poor light in the photos it was quite late when I made this.
|First cut two pieces of fabric the same size.|
|Then turn over and pin the top edges down. Pin in the opposite direction to the way you will sew and then you can sew straight over the pins.|
|Then machine the top edges|
|Next pin handles ensuring they are evenly spaced and in the same position on both sides|
|Then machine in place with a square and a cross to ensure it is secure|
|Once handles are attached pin the two pieces right sides together|
|Then sew around the three sides|
|At the bottom of the bag take the side and bottom seam and push together. Pin in place and machine a line across (as you can see the purple line)|
|Do the same on the other side and they make two ears|
|Turn the right way around|
