Spring Bag - sewing tutorial

I like to decorate little things. This is an easy project for decorate a bag. Today I put some red flowers on a book bag. And 3 clouds. And sun. Because it's spring time. I used colorful felt and a bag that bought from hobby store.

Here is the bag. The size is 14.56 x 14.56 inches (37 x37 cm).You can make a bag like this as a present for your mom or grandma, a present for a teacher or for a book lover. And if you sew a little ballerina on the front, it can be a ballerina bag. But this is another ... ballerina story, maybe for another tutorial.

First, I cut some shapes: circles for flowers and sun, green stripes for stems, blue cloud shapes, green leaves shapes. I cut the shapes without a pattern, but if you are not so sure, you can download and use my pattern from here: Ema's Decorations Pattern. If you want to add some curly lines to your flowers, first cut the circle and then play with your scissor around to obtain a curly line.

Use some pins to fix all pieces on your bag and then sew them. It's easy. You can finish in an hour. 

I made 5 poppy flowers, but you can make more or less, depending your imagination. You can also use different colors and other shapes.

Happy sewing.
