Bag It

Making the weekender bag was not that easy, a little bit frustrating actually but I got there in the end and have used my bag the other day.It is a comfortable bag to carry and looks great.I think people should make this bag.


My Bag!

My Shoulder Bag
The easiest bag to make is the shoulder bag but it looks really cool even though it's simple. I made mine with a pocket on the front, which has my name embroidered on it. This makes my bag look really unique. Another feature my bag has is a netting pocket on the inside, perfect for my drink bottle that always seems to be wet! I have already used my bag a lot and it's great for just going around town.

TIDY IT Box for my Mums photos.

This term we did Tidy It. Thats when you design and make a pine and MDF box. My conceptual statement was that my Mum has lots of pictures and she needs a box to keep the dust off them!! I burned it and then oiled it, thats how i got the effect. My box is 90x200x50mm. That was just the size I wanted it for my Mums photos. I  improved on my sawing and I used the mirtre joint for the corners because it is strong.

My creation

My bag started as a flap bag but I wasn't completely satisfied with the size so I did a bit of editing.
I wanted to swap it around so that the bottom was longer than the sides rather then the other way round. It was harder but it was worth it.
I also decided that instead of a flap I would have a zip, another challenge but I got there.

My sewing wasn't very neat, I didn't turn it inside out before sewing and I needed to zigzag the edges,
but overall at least it's not falling apart :) ....Yet.
A valuable lesson for all, remember to turn your bag inside out.

It's a bit messy and next time I aim to improve this.

Bag Take 2

When we started our bags we got to look at all the different types of bags and choose what we wanted to do. We  then modified  them to suit our needs. Mine was originally a flap bag but later on it failed and I had to start again with a slightly easier design (keeping the same flap).
Over all I thought it was really good learning experience.

Flap Bag

Step 1: We did some research about the different things that could be put into bags.

Step 2: We talked about the different ways we could make our bag stronger.
We talked about what size it was going to be and how we would make our bags stronger by using zig zag to stop it from coming apart and we talked about our identification of our bag so that we knew it was our own.

I put my name on my Flap Bag and put a clip on the inside so that I could clip different thing to it so I knew where they were.  My bag was a good size because I can fit all the stuff I need for when I go to a friends.
