Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Book Bag Link to website or photo www.notonthehighstreet.com/lillyblossom/product/sewing-guide-how-to-make-a-book-bag What are you most proud of? Choosing the beads to match the fabric. When I take one out with me I am always getting asked where I got them from, they do make a wonderful gift for any book lover. What advice would you give someone starting this project? To make the corners as square as possible before top-stitching them for a professional finish. The pattern is available from our Notonthehighstreet.com shop and our other outlets including Etsy/lillyblossom and our own website www.lillyblossom.co.uk

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric

Great project...looking for a nice covering for my bible...

Wonderful, we have made many for bibles and it's quite easy to adjust the sizing if you have sewing experience, once you see how they are constructed
