Another milestone in my sewing experience.
Some parts of the reminder fabric was used to decorate the sides of the bag and the pocket, just so the theme runs through the bag.
These two labels have some of their sides left raw.. I had been wanting to try making bags with a more casual, scrap fabric feel, which I see around the internet.
Custom label with the boy's name and school and his own artwork rocket. This was produced by iron on sheet.
Another name tag attached to the strap. This is also ironed onto the remnants of the theme panel fabric. See? A small piece of fabric goes a long way in design!
Finally, his mom's humble shop label. (Why am I acting humble suddenly..? lol)
Finishing the seams on the bag. I tried to be lazy and just sewed on the binding with the sewing machine but it ended up looking like a truck ran over it. I had to redo and baste it before it could be sewn neatly. Took me 1 hour for each of the two sides. Ha, using some patience I never knew existed. But you would agree, the result is gratifying right?
