And so here is a new bag idea. I drafted a simple pattern and then sewed it up using the same materials as I did in my wallet prototype. It is a fairly large and roomy bag that closes with a flap and magnetic snap, 10" wide at the top, 13 1/2" at its widest point, 9 1/2" tall, with a 3" gusset...just the right size to carry around on a typical day out. The handles are 20" long. For a first try, the bag turned out quite beautifully. However, it is not yet perfect and I will have to make a few adjustments when I make the final version.
I am currently writing up the instructions for making this bag but I need some of your help. Would you care to give this BAG STYLE a name? If you do, the featured bag above can be yours!
TO BE IN THE RUNNING TO WIN THIS BAG, all you have to do is leave a comment here with a suggested name for this bag style. Please leave your email address as well so I can contact you in the event that you win.
I will not give a timeframe for this competition just yet as I would like to get as many suggestions as I can. COMPETITION CLOSES 11:59 pm, Sunday, 22nd of March, Australian Eastern Standard Time.
I am going to use the winning name for the eBook I am making, which I hope I will be able to release really soon. The competition is open to anyone who wishes to enter it. I am willing to ship this bag to anywhere around the world!
REMEMBER...think of a name for the bag style and not the particular bag shown here.
Hope you can all join in. Good luck!
