b-Crochet the strap.

Begin your crochet by carefully selecting 11 stitches from the upper left front of the bag bodice you’ve just completed. Transition to the meeting point of the bag’s front and back sides, and pick up an additional stitch. Now, move to the upper left back side of the bodice you’ve crafted and choose another 11 stitches. In total, you should now have 23 stitches, forming the foundation of your project.

Once you’ve established these stitches, it’s time to continue your crochet work. Take these 23 stitches and crochet back and forth, meticulously crafting your piece until it reaches the desired length of approximately 50.5 cm or 20 inches. Keep a keen eye on the width as well; the strap should measure around 18 cm or 7 1/4 inches across.

3-Line the bag.

To begin lining your bag, place your fabric flat on a smooth surface. Then, outline the bag shape meticulously on the fabric. Once you’ve created the template, cut it out and duplicate the process to craft an identical second panel. Now, you have two fabric panels at your disposal. Seam these together, either by employing a sewing machine or opting for meticulous hand stitching. After the meticulous stitching process, gently position the lining inside the bag. Secure it firmly by sewing along the edges with a matching thread. For a comprehensive demonstration, we highly recommend consulting the detailed video tutorial below. This resource provides crystal-clear visuals and step-by-step instructions, ensuring optimal understanding and execution of the process.

 

4-Sew the zipper.

In this crucial step, gather a zipper that perfectly matches your bag and secure it with pins, ensuring the zipper stays open throughout the process. Commence sewing from the inside of the bag, utilizing the matching thread for a seamless blend. Carefully stitch along both sides of the zipper until it’s firmly attached. After successfully sewing in the zipper, gently remove all the pins. Voilà! Your bag is now ready for use.
