OK, I know this video is LONG … but it covers absolutely EVERYTHING you need to know to make the Abby Sling Bag by Sew Many Creations. This super stylish and can easily be made in a weekend and I know you’re going to love it.
This bag is seriously awesome. There are SEVEN pockets, a recessed zipper to keep all your goodies inside save and secure, a back zippered pocket perfect for your wallet, easy access and stylish front pockets that are great for your cell phone keys, emergency chocolate bar, basically anything. And it is BIG. You can seriously hold everything in it while being stylish.
To help make it easier to reference as you sew through your bag, I am putting the time codes on for all the techniques we cover in this video … it’s a lot, the most in-depth bag tutorial we’ve ever done. Feel free to skip around to help with other bag projects you have in the works.
