We used the Japanese Sashiko Circle bag to create this tutorial. You can create all the circle bags with this tutorial.
To make this Fully Lined Circle Bag You Need:
When The design is stitched, turn hoop over, add lining to the back and stitch the last color stop.
Please note: The individual pieces will not be lined in the hoop, but after all 8 panels are joined.
Cut a 1” seam allowance once the embroidery is removed from the hoop.
The lining for the Flap will be placed ON TOP/FRONT of the hoop, as you will be turning the flap inside out.
With a straight stitch on your sewing machine, sew the flap to the inner circle
You can make your own Bias tape or use store bought bias tape. We joined 2 x 2” wide bias tape to have the desired 4” wide Bias Tape. (approx. 46” cut in half x 4” wide)
Iron bias tape flat and cut the ends. Divide each strip in half and mark with a pin. (23” strips x 2)
The flap will be the front, so start pinning the bias tape from the left to the right side of the flap (see image below)
Overlap the 2 sections of bias tape slightly to cover the raw edges. Secure with a straight stitch.
Fold Bias Tape over to the Back (or lined section) pin and secure with a straight stitch.
Insert your cord or ribbon from the 1 end and out the same side where you started. Do the same for the opposite
Add an embellishment if you desire. We added a little pearl.
Attach the snap fasteners as shown below and your Circle Bag is Complete!
