Boho Mama Bag

Tutorial Is Here

Using an old sheet (for fear of stuffing up my other fabric) and 2 SS rings bought from the local BCF (Boating, Camping and Fishing) store I made this bag tonight.

The tute is detailed and it was quiet easy to follow. I did do mine a little differently in that I did not overlock and fold the entire opening but rather sewed the lining and outer right sides together and then turned them (out the strap hole) and top stitched...continuing along the strap. I hope that makes sense, lol. I found that really easy to do.

The tail is long enough that I will be adding a pocket to it, I have just run out of time tonight. Will probably use snaps to close as I don't do zippers yet ;).

I bought 40mm rings - too small! I got it to work but if making it again I would want at least 60mm.

Thanks Mel for the great tute.

PS. there is no measurement for the strap width - made them 12.5cm on the fold.
