costume sewing – Indy bag

It’s a bag. An Indiana Jones type messenger bag, to be exact. For my dear son, who was terribly thrilled to be what he used to refer to as “the cowboy man” for Halloween.

Here are the tutorials I used to make the bag (particularly the first):

My first time making a lined bag! Very exciting, and, added bonus! I didn’t buy a single thing for it. I used remnants I already had, and the strap is some nylon webbing that used to be the (completely inferior) belt for his toy gun. Next time, I will be interfacing the fabric though, to give it some more structure. Also, in the awesome bag I will be making for myself VERY SOON, I will do the extra pockets; I didn’t have the time or the inclination for it on this one.
