Finally... I have completed the hexagon patchwork bag. :) I don't think I will start another project like this anytime soon. Taking too much time... :)
I have inserted purse feet for the bag, see this useful link to learn how:
The look of inside (inside out before turning). The "Boxy Bag" tutorial has provided great help in attaching the lining.
Made quite a few mistakes along the way... My thread unpicking technique has improved.. :) See below to learn a few tricks:
This is a project I bought from Emma's handmade. The outer fabric came with the project however I didn't used the lining fabric provided as it is blue. I didn't think that it will go well with the outer fabric, hence I used Japanese fabric "Alice's In The Wonderland" from stock clearance corner of May May Shop instead.
2) PU leather handle, rivet and purse feet
These are bought online from China website.
Rivet is also available from My handmade Station
I found these useful links which help in bag making :
1) Attaching leather handle (The one above is PU and not real leather. I prefer not to use leather...)
2) How to set a double cap rivet?
3) How to sew curved corner?
5) How to press purse & bag?
I used thick canvas bought from Nagoya (1 meter about RM10.50). In the old days, my mom used this too for ironing and I was happy to see it at Nagoya. :)
6) Sewing the zipper pocket
