Apple of my eyes....even though!

A diaper bag. A simple, trial and error project. External material is scotch guard, fabric usually for curtain and water resistant, handles and lining were of cotton. A magnetic button for fastening and richly pocketed bag with eight all, and two wrapped elastic bands as fastener in the interior. Measures 20"x 11"x 5" approximately.

But, I was not very happy and satisfied with the handles.... kind of wobble and should sew the lines continuously down. I sandwiched in batting, instead of thick interfacing, intentionally to give a soft effect on the shoulder while carrying , but turned out so :(

Actually I wanted it to have two usage by fixing snap buttons on the exterior, at all sides or just let it open freely. But I have no larger snap buttons...but it still gets the effect of the other design without the buttons though. I learnt a lot of lessons from this apple green.... :)

Nice and yes,..I agree with you about the handles,it will stand better if sewn all the way. Apple green... good teacher.

mamikelate, the green was an envious of my collection, yet I have just a small amount.... :(

SCLover, thanks dear.... kakDee letak fibre batting dlm tu, agar dia tak rasa bulky pada bahu ibu yang bawa....tapi rasa tak berapa sesuai, walaupun it serves the purpose. Jadi tak berapa kemas dan kukuh!

DiahRothman said...

Sue dear, thanks..... and me,you, sincerely.

DiahRothman said...

Aida, thanks dear.

Hanim, just did not realized until all done.

DiahRothman said...

vita@kriyalea said...

waaa.. Vita ketinggalan nih Kak Dee.. lama tak kesini, sudah banyak karya Kak dee yg cantik-cantik..
Suka sekali warna & kombinasinya Kak Dee, handle-nya pun tak ada kekurangan lah Kak..

DiahRothman said...

umi eca, KD selalu ziarah umah you, and you make a lot of beatiful bags.

KD selalunya beli online setelah tau harga di pasaran atau kedai craft biasa. Selalunya kawan jual online harga memang berpatutan lebih2 lagi waktu ada sales.... Ramai reliable online LOCAL shoppe ada dalam net, and their prices are reasonable.

My advice that you always choose two sizes for one items, you won't regret, finally you will use them all...:) Happy sewing, dear!
