How to sew a shoulder bag with two toned strap

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today I am here to show you how to sew a small shoulder bag with magnetic flap closure, two-toned strap and three way divided interior compartment. 

For this project you will need to precut the following fabric pieces. 

Cut (1) 9.5” x 41” Interior Center Pocket

Cut (1) 10” x 28” Interior Body Panel 

Cut (2) 10” x 14” Exterior Body Panels + two liked size pieces of quilt batting 

Cut (2) 8.5” x 14” Flap 

Cut (2) 2” x 34” Strap

Plus 1 magnetic snap closure

You will need 1.5 yards of material for this project. I suggest 3/4 yards for the interior, a 1/2 yard for the exterior and a 1/4 yard for the accent. 

Approximate finished measurements: 

6” across the base

7.5” across the top

10” tall

3” deep

12” handle drop 

I hope you enjoy this project and will take a moment to “like” the video and subscribe to the channel. Many thanks to our Sewspire Patrons for their continued support of the channel! 

I will be back next week with another inspired sewing project. Until then, please know, the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you!
