The first part I did, was the light-blue bag with the horse on it. The fabric was cut from a sleeping bag my kids have grown out of. When I realized how easy it really was to sew, I got my first meters of fabric from the store…that’s where my doubts began: could I really use this very thin fabric as an outer-shell for my bag? Wouldn’t it have to become the lining of the bag? What a waste that would be!
My doubts literally turned out to be unfounded, because the bag can be turned either way you want once it’s finished…

The inspiration to take up sewing came from the very well-made tutorial by Rickli (in German).
