It is a simple bag and similar technique could be seen here:
I added batting to the applique and quilted a bit using Nylon invisible thread (sample of how it looks. I bought it locally in Ampang, about RM7 per spool of 200M). It is almost stress free sewing with invisible thread.. Since it is designed to be invisible, it is not easy to see even if the sewing is bad.. :)
This is the back of the bag.. I finally have a chance to use this blue & flower laces which I think I got them as free gift from fabric suppliers.
The bag was made from an old pair of jeans. I probably have it for more than 15 years. I have only used the leg parts of the jeans.
I kept the top part, planning to turn it into another bag...
The lining is made from an old denim shirt. I left the pocket intact.. I needed a pocket inside the bag anyway.. :)
The blue cotton strap came from http://loveandcraftsupply.blogspot.com/ (already out of stock), 1 meter RM3.6.
oh.. please meet my new friend, Jean-A-Ma-Jig. Without it, sewing through the thick Jeans seam would be a night mare...
See here on how to use Jean-A-Ma-Jig:
The above link has better pictures and explanation of how the tool is used. But here are 2 lousy pictures I took. To sew over thick area, the presser foot is at an angle, we could slide the Jean-A-Ma-Jig behind the presser foot (or in front) to make the presser foot even, then sewing is easier...
Bought it from Joann, tumpang kawan beli....
Have a good weekend,
