Dianne verified owner — December 15, Ange — December 16, This will reinforce the pocket opening. This will create your cylinder barrel for the body of your bag. I had such a good experience shopping with Pacific Trimming , I reached out to them to tell them how much I like their products.
Pin the unfinished ends of the O-ring loops to the raw edge of the bag exterior at the side seams. Make sure the stitches are secure. Turn the bag exterior wrong-side out with the bag strap inside the bag. Turn the lining right-side out and place it inside the bag exterior, with ride sides together. Turn the bag right-side out through the opening.
Straighten and press the top edge of the bag, making sure to tuck the seam allowance in at the opening. Edge stitch around the top of the bag. Use them to practice before you try it on your bag. Try to make an X to start, then carefully cut through enough thread to make a hole big enough to fit the inside edge of the eyelet. Unfortunately, this is an imprecise science, which is why you should practice first.
The washer goes on the inside. Secure using the instructions for your setting tool or pliers. This little sliding loop will allow you to easily cinch the cord on your bag and prevent the ends from pulling through. I used contrasting thread for this demonstration, but used matching thread in the actual project. This will make it easier to push the cord through the eyelets and the cord stop.
Thread the Cord Through the Eyelets. Take one end of the cord and thread it through all the eyelets. The two ends should come out the same side in adjacent eyelets. I had such a good experience shopping with Pacific Trimming , I reached out to them to tell them how much I like their products.

It goes in between the layers to add heft and strength to the bag. Sometimes they are called small grommets. Not so easy to find in stores, but readily available on Etsy and Pacific Trimming. Available at craft stores and lots of shops online, including Etsy and Pacific Trimming. You can use wider webbing, but make sure it fits your slider and your O-rings. It needs to fit loosely through your eyelets. Rotary cutter and mat Scissors, pins, seam ripper Double-sided sewing tape or glue stick X-acto knife I forgot to put this in my glamour shot of supplies, but I used my superior Photoshopping skillz to seamlessly add it to the picture.
I like the inexpensive Dritz tool that comes with the eyelet set better than the pliers, but pliers work too. Save these squares for grommet practice!
Mark the placement on the line: Position the Pocket Lining on the Bag Lining To align the pocket lining with the marks on the bag lining, stick a straight pin through the top corners of the welt pocket shape on the pocket lining, and then through the corresponding marks on the bag lining. Press the Pocket Opening Push the pocket lining fabric through to the wrong side of the bag lining. Prepare the Zipper Prepare the zipper by putting double-sided sewing tape along the top and bottom edges.
Sew the Zipper to the Lining Using a zipper foot, sew close to the edge around the four sides of the pocket opening to secure the zipper to the bag lining. Close the Pocket Lining On the wrong side of the bag lining fold the pocket lining in half vertically.
Construct the Bag Lining Place the two pieces of the bag lining right sides together. Box the Bottom of the Lining To box the bottom of the bag lining, pull the bag open at one of the bottom notches. Sew the Exterior and Interlining Together To construct the bag exterior, layer the two exterior fabrics between the interlining pieces with right sides together.
Box the bottom of the exterior as you did the lining. Make the Strap Take one of the ends of the long strap and put it through the slide adjuster. Make sure the strap is untwisted before proceeding. Attach the Strap to the Bag Exterior Turn the bag exterior right side out. Sew the Bag Lining to the Bag Exterior Turn the bag exterior wrong-side out with the bag strap inside the bag. Edge Stitch Around the Top Turn the bag right-side out through the opening.
Use a pair of small scissors to cut the threads out of the hole. Using the grommet tools, hammer the front and back pieces of the grommet together. Attach the two straps to the front and back of the bag using the rivets. Create a hole with the leather awl, stick the rivet through and attach the two pieces together using a hammer. We used a paper plate that had an 8.
Ours measured 29 inches. This measurement will be the length of your rectangle. Create a rectangle based on the circumference of the plate. Add an inch to the length for the seams. Our rectangle measured 30 x 16 inches.
This bucket bag needs some flair. Cut a rectangle that mimics your first rectangle. Ours measured 30 x 6 inches. Pin and sew your two leathers together. No need to sew around all four sides, —just sew the middle where they meet. Sew extra slowly to make sure you get a straight stitch.
Fold good sides facing in and sew together. This will create your cylinder barrel for the body of your bag. Cut two long rectangles from your base leather that measure 1.
Fold in half lengthwise and sew. Measure out areas to attach your grommets. We found the middle of the bag and placed our two grommets about 1. We used those two to spae the rest of the grommets. We placed them each three inches apart. This difference will help make it clear which part of the bag is the front. Slide the rivet through and secure both pieces together using a hammer.
