What about ye folks, it's Lee here. Ok, so it's not a backpack....but it is another Debbie Shore bag, teehee. This one is her large tote bag that she shared the tutorial for on YouTube. By the way, do you know I have a YouTube Channel? I haven't uploaded much on it lately but I am in the process of remedying that. My camcorder died on me and I had to buy a new one...ugh! But hopefully I'll be back to sharing video tutorials very soon.
Anyway, back to this tote bag. I used a Disney's Dumbo fat quarter bundle and it has the most adorable images on it. My wee Mamma loves Dumbo, and the colour combination of yellow and grey together, so this will be going to her. I will share a shopping list for as many of the products I used that I can remember where I bought them, lol.
This bag has 2 zips....and might I add, these are my first ever zips I've put into anything. And I actually did a good job, teehee. Not perfect but, pretty damn close. The 2 zips were actually upcycled from an old zip up fleece that I had. The fleece was falling apart so, I couldn't give it to charity. So I sat unpicking the salvageable bits off it, ie, the zips. And they worked out great for this bag. This pocket above, is at the front of the bag.
I purchased the fat quarter bundle from Ebay - just do a quick search & you should find some
Vlieseline/Vilene Volume Fleece Fusible H640 90cm - Amazon
6mm wide black elastic (used in expandable side pockets), Ebay
19" & 8" zip - I didn't buy these anywhere, I actually recycled them from an old fleece zip up top I had but you can find zippers on Ebay really easily. Buy a continuous zip and that way you can cut it to whatever length you need. That way, there is less waste.
That's it for now from me folks.....what do you think is coming next? No...I really want to know, because I haven't a clue, teehee. Any suggestions? I'm open to any ideas or requests you have. Leave them down in the comments section below.
