Still missing a stylish Christmas present for a loved one? Then we've got the perfect idea. Our fluffy Rapantinchen bag will delight any accessory lover. Below you will find sewing instructions for this special fluffy gift.
1 x cut-out of outer pocket according to pattern
1 x cut-out of inner pocket according to pattern
The seam allowance is included in the pattern.
Fold the fabric for cutting twice. To do this, first fold along the selvedge lengthwise in half and then again fold crosswise in half along the cut edge.
SEWING THE OUTSIDE & INSIDE POCKET
Unless otherwise specified, a seam allowance of 1 cm is used for sewing.
Fold the fabric for the outer pocket on the right along the fabric break for the bottom of the bag. Stitch and sew the side seams together. Leave the corner at the bottom of the bag open. Repeat on the other side of the outer pocket.
ASSEMBLE THE BAG
Turn the inner pocket to the right and slide it into the outer pocket so that the right fabric sides of the inner and outer pockets meet. Push the open edges of the upper pocket opening together so that the side seams of the inner and outer pockets meet. Sew all around, but leave a turnaround opening of approx. 8 cm.
SEW SHORT HANDLES
Cut a 2 m long piece of the webbing and put the webbing on the bag at one point as explained in the following steps. To prevent the cutting edges of the webbing from fraying, they can be heated slightly with a candle or lighter. This melts any protruding threads.
Attach the webbing to the bottom of the bag at a distance of 3.5 cm from the bottom seam.
SEW THE LONG HANDLE
Cut the remaining webbing strap to the desired length so that the bag can be carried crosswise if desired. Add 12 cm to the desired end length, in order to sew the webbing strap. Fold the ends of the webbing inwards by 1.5 cm and centre them on the side seam at a distance of 5 cm from the pocket opening and sew. Again, work with a stabilising cross. As an option, the short pocket handles at the pocket opening can also be equipped with a stabiliser cross.
Have fun giving it away or wearing it yourself!
