Humbug Bag Tutorial


Humbug Bag Tutorial



Requirements:An Outer fabric - 17" x 12"An Inner fabric - 17" x 12"
Pellon - 17" x 12"
Contrast fabric for the binding and tabs - Binding cut to 2 1/2" wide x 12"
Tabs cut 2 1/2" wide by your desired length
Zip 13" or 35cm

NOTE: You can change the size of the bag by changing the zipper size and the length and depth of the fabric

Sandwich the three layers together
Do some freemotion quilting to attach them together

Iron binding over

Attached binding by folding over the raw edge of the 12" sides
The middle of the binding sits flush on the raw edge.
Sew the binding on with one sewing line

Then attached the zip.
Pin the zip to the inside fabric as shown above. Make sure the zip is unzipped right to the bottom, it is alot easier to attach it this way.... this is not done in the above photo.

Sew the zip on one side then on  the other, as shown above.... this photo is looking at the zip from the inside.

Do up the zip and turn inside out.  Pin the bottom of the bag, adding the tab in by the bottom of the zip.
Sew the bottom of the bag right sides together. Cut the excess zip off once you have done this.

Now sew the other end of the bag.. this time vertical so it looks like the photo below. Be sure to add the other tab to the top of the bag as shown in the photo.

Now your bag is finished.
