Japanese knot bag Sewing Tutorial
This quick and easy, step by step sewing tutorial is an ideal project for weekends and beginner sewists.
I love the look of the Japanese knot bag. I have made it reversible so it will be more fun to use it everyday!
1 YARD OF QUILTING COTTON (1/2 YARD OF ONE PRINT AND A DIFFERENT ONE FOR THE INSIDE)
1/2 yard of batting
1 yard of woven interfacing.
Sewing Supplies: Sewing machine, coordinating thread, scissors, etc.)
- Add the batting to the lining of the bag: place the lining fabric and the batting together, wrong side of the fabric and right side of the batting together.
2. Free motion the batting to the lining. I like to do it with a regular stitch length but very slowly covering most of the surface of the lining.
3. Repeat with the other side of the lining and batting and then put them aside.
4. Bring the main bag fabric to the table and add the woven interfacing by pressing it on the wrong side of the fabric. Then, sew the straps together.
5. Then, sew the rounded part of the bag, starting where the straps ends and the bag begins.
6. Turn the bag to the right side and press flat.
7. Then, repeat with the lining fabric. However, keep the lining on the wrong side.
8. Insert the lining to the bag.
9. Match the seams on the straps and start folding the fabric 3/8 inch inside.
10. Stitch around the straps as shown on the image below:
11. Now, carefully fold 3/8 and pin the opening of the bag. You might need to make some notches to the curve areas.
12. Stitch the lining and main fabric together.
And it is ready!
How easy is it? I love a quick weekend project, don’t you?
