I love networking with other artists and crafters. During a craft show in May, I was talking to my “neighbor”, Val of The Vintage Junkies. She showed me a picture of a self-closing canvas bag on her phone and asked if I could make something similar to that. It turns out, it was a pin on Pinterest that linked to a tutorial for a really cool design!
The strap is woven through the eyelets and is attached to the bag in a way that pulls it closed when held by the strap. Isn’t that clever?
I put my own spin on it, using olive green canvas, black/white ticking, and a soft woven strap, but I used the tutorial for the basic pattern/design. Would you like to make one? You can view the tutorial for the original design here.
Not into sewing? Watch for variations of this style at my upcoming craft shows and in my online shop!
