Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew-Along Week 4!

By now, your bag is beginning to take shape and if you are like me, you’re  thinking about other possible fabrics to make the bag out of. I’ve decided to make a few and have them ahead for impromptu gifts. If you decide to follow my lead, I know you will amaze your non-sewing friends with your skills and they’ll love the versatility of this bag!

 

Now that you have matched the lining to the exterior of the bag and sewn the 2 together across the top and sides, a little clipping is in order. Diagonally clip the corners

photo 1 1 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

and I also suggest clipping the curved edge along the top. The top will lay much smoother if you take just a few moments to do the clipping.

photo 21 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

Now the magic happens!! Slip your hand into the opening on the lining

photo 31 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

and pull the exterior of the bag through to the right side.

photo 41 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

Before you push the lining to the inside of the bag, you will need to close the opening that was left for turning. In the video I sewed the opening closed with the machine. If your fabric is a little heavier, I would suggest hand stitching the opening closed. It will look a little nicer and lay a little flatter inside the bag.

photo 51 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

Once you have closed the opening in the lining, push the lining to the inside of the bag. At this point you should do a little pressing to achieve a truly finished look to your bag. Give the handles a good press, unless you used leather. Press along the top of the bag so that the seams are nice and crisp.  Now hold your bag up and declare, I made this!!!!

photo 61 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 4!

Be sure to post your finished bags to the Sew News Flickr page. I REALLY want to see your magnificent bags.

Thanks so much for sewing along with me. I’ve had a blast!

Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew-Along Week 3!

Thank you for coming back to the Belle Handbag Sew-Along Week 3. We are rounding the corner to finishing up this great bag! Some of you have not only completed the bag but made additional bags as well! Please head to the Belle Handbag Sew-Along Flickr group to see all the fabulous fabrics and jobs these ladies are doing!

Amy Butler Beautiful Belle Sew Along Week 3

Hopefully you have had a chance to cut out  your  fabric, apply the interfacing and take a look at the instructions. This is a bag that goes together quickly and easily.

Begin by sewing 2 rows of gathering stitches into the top of the exterior panels. Set the exterior panel aside for now.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Fold the handles in half lengthwise and sew them together with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Remember, all seam allowances on this bag are 1/2″.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Once you have sewn both handles, clip along the curved edge. This will allow the handle to lay smoothly once it is turned. Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! To turn the handles, simply use a safety pin and push one end through to the other.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Press the seams flat.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

On either side of the handle stitch 1/4″ away from the edge.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Once the stitching is finished, fold the handle in half and find the center. Place a pin at that point.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Measure 2″ on either side of the center and place a pin at these points. Fold the handle in half lengthwise and stitch from one pin to the other. This will form the grip and make the bag quite comfortable to carry in your hand. Set the handles aside for now.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Take 2 of the pocket panels and place them right sides together. Stitch the top edges together.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Without breaking your thread, open the 2 panels out flat,

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! the seam allowance will be on the underneath side. Push the seam allowance to one side and edge stitch the seam on the top side.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Once the edge stitch has been completed, fold the pocket panel at the seam edge, wrong sides of the fabric will be facing each other. Edge stitch the top side of the fabric.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Once I have completed the first line of stitching, I like to do 1 more. It will look lovely and give the edge of the pocket panels a little more stability.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Once you have sewn both of the pocket panels together, place them on top of the lining panels.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Determine the amount of pockets that you would like to have. Draw the lines in with a marking pencil and then stitch the pocket panels to the lining panels. Rather than just one row of stitching, I like to do 2 rows. I think it gives the pockets a little nicer look.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Now take the cell phone pocket, fold it in half with right sides together. Stitch around, leaving an opening in the bottom for turning.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Once the stitching is complete, trim the seam allowance and clip the corners.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Turn the pocket to the right side and press. Determine where you would like to place your cell phone pocket. I like having mine over to one side. I simply folded the edge of my pocket panel back and stitched my cell phone pocket in place.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Stitch the pocket right along the edge and then do a second row of stitching about 1/8″ away from the first row of stitching. This will help to keep the pocket nice and secure through the repeated use of using your cell phone.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Baste the edges of the pocket panels to the edge of the lining panels. I put my scissors in the pockets so you could see the pockets.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Now, match right sides together and sew the lining panels together. Remember to leave an opening in the bottom in order to be able to turn the bag once you have sewn the lining to the exterior of the bag. Your opening should be from 4″ to 8″ wide depending upon the thickness of your fabric.  Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

If you would like to add a magnetic closure to your bag, now is the time to do so. I like to reinforce the area where the closure will be. This is quite easy to do. Just cut a small square of interfacing and iron it in the area where the closure will be.

black squares  Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! To attach the closure, find the center of the lining panel and make a small clip.

Untitled3 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Measure down 1″ . Remember, the seam allowance is 1/2″ so we need to be sure that our closure will not interfere with the stitching line once we sew the lining to the exterior of the bag.

black 3  Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Place the back of the closure on the fabric and mark the openings with a marking pencil.

black 4 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Take your scissors and carefully clip openings. Push the magnetic closure through the openings

black 5 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! and on the back side place the metal disc over the prongs.

Untitled 6 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Now simply push the prongs to either side. Repeat this process for the other side of the closure on the opposite side of the bag.

Untitled 7 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Take the exterior panels and draw up the gathering stitches. Use the top edge of the lining panel to determine the amount of gathering that you will need.

 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Once the gathering stitches have been pulled the amount needed, pin the handles to the top of the bag. Be sure to pay close attention to how you are placing the handles on the bag. The points should go towards the center. It seems a bit strange now, but once the bag is turned, it will all make sense.

attach handles to exterior bag11 300x225 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3!

Once the handles have been attached to the bag, match the right side of the exterior of the bag to the right side of the lining.

Untitled 8 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Sew the top of the bag closed by sewing from one dot to the next and across the top of the bag.

Untitled 9 Beautiful Belle Handbag Sew Along Week 3! Then sew from the dot to the dot along the opposite side. Do the same on the other side of the bag.

Next week we will turn and finish the bag.

I think that once you’ve finished one bag, more will be in your future!!!

Hope you are enjoying the sew along!
