To make this fabric bag, you need the following materials and sewing tools:

  • Katia Fabrics fabric, preferably a resistant fabric such as denim, poplin, or canvas.
  • Fabric scissors.
  • Sewing machine.
  • Matching thread.
  • Ruler and pencil.
  • Tape measure.

 Making a fabric bag

  1. Cut 2 pieces from each fabric, you need 4 pieces in total.
  2. Place the fabrics with right sides facing each other and sew along the side. Once sewn, open up the pieces and place them with the right sides facing again. Sew around the entire edge except for the top.
  3. Repeat the same process with the other pieces.
  4. Next, sew the straps, so place them half a centimeter from the seams on the right side of the piece. Sew them to the edge to attach them.
  5. Insert one of the pieces inside of the other, with the right sides facing each other. Sew around the entire top edge, leaving a few centimeters open to turn the bag inside out.
  6. Turn the bag right side out and iron it so that it is nice and smooth.
  7. Finally, sew a running stitch around the edge to close the opening.

And done! Your reversible shopper bag made with Katia Fabrics is ready! You can customize it with details on the inner pockets, zippers, buttons, or decorative details. Let your creativity run wild and enjoy your new accessory!
