I used the same fabric as I did on my DIY-tai and I love that they are all matchy matchy 😀
All the hems are rolled, rolled hems are a new technique to me and it almost put me off starting it but after I’d done just the first couple of inches and got round my first corner I was really comfy with doing the rolled hem and even stopped pinning them after a while and just rolled on the stop/start instead (I hate pins anyway so any excuse really) It too me ages inbetween the kids and getting other stuff done but I still reckon I put about 25hours into it and every second was worth it and I’m now planning my next one… I think it might be purple 🙂
I love bags but I don’t really DO bags lol all that having to hold on to something and remembering to pick it up if I put it down somewhere so I don’t lose it 😦 (I’ve lost loads of stuff by leaving it at my bum :() anyway no probs there with this bag, it’s really comfy on the shoulder, it can be a rucksac too if I wanted and the best thing is, I love it so much I could NEVER forget about it YAY!
The red bit is the original, bonafide, the real thing Onbag DIY label available from the lovely Sarah herself 🙂
This is the bottom of the bag, I put an extra hem that looks like a rolled hem between the bottom of the side pocket and edge of the bag bottom to add some extra structure to the bottom of the bag 🙂
I made the front flap 3 inches wider and 3 inches longer to give better coverage to the front of the bag but also so I could get more of the lovely dolphins pattern in 😀
