After everyone made this bag and gave their input, the pattern was reworked several times and now will be so much easier to make with the updated instructions. I know what I will need to do if I make another bag, LOL!!! You can go to the Fashion Clique page website to purchase this pattern if you would like to make your own Drawstring Sling and follow the updated and revised pattern, lol!!! I'm sure you will enjoy making this bag knowing the instructions are spot on now. It's not difficult to sew and goes together quickly too. Go here to see all the tester's bags. You can get the pattern with a 10% discount now too by using this code: 10off Discount good until October 20, 2014.
Here is my version of the bag~
|I used a home dec fabric and a piece of fabric that I had painted and stamped a couple of years ago as the bottom.|
|There is a magnetic snap closure for the flap and the drawstrings to cinch in the bag. I made a casing rather than the called for 14 eyelets around the bag. If my interfacing had not been so stiff, this would have worked fine.|
