Here are all my trappings for my satchel.
I have approximately 2 days to whip this satchel up so last night I fixed my plans in mind and it’ll take 15 min to draw up pattern and cutting up the fabric. Ok, 15 min. to make quick pattern then at least 1/2 hr to cut up fabric.
This satchel took just!! 2 long days sewing, approx 25-30 hours and I had so much more I’d like to have done.
I’ll be designing a pattern for this one and I already have a smaller one in the works.
What I love:
Size of satchel
Ribbon placement around zipper
Straps & buckles
How I sewed the top bit with zipper.
What needs work:
Different colour of raspberry red front flap buckles fastenings, or a the same colour for shoulder strap for consistency.
How I’ll work all buckles and strap.
Longer front flap about 4 inches longer.
The D rings need to be the correct size to fit the straps and I also need to add a tension-lock.
Well I spent three weeks on a road trip trying out my first proto type satchel and so far I’m please with most of it. Next week I’ll draw up a second proto type with all my corrections.
Do you have to make your ideal bag because you just can’t find one you like?
God Bless & Keep Sewing
