Little Bird Book Bag Tutorial

Little Bird Book Bag Tutorial

Shopping for craft books at the public library is one of my fave past times, and bringing them home for free somehow gives me satisfaction despite having to return them in 3 weeks. The need for a sweet little tote to carry my temporary books from the library inspired this little bird book bag.



Gotta have:

    Thrifted sweater
    Printed cotton fabric
    Sewing machine
    Needle and coordinating thread
    Bird pattern

The length and width of the purse will depend on the size of sweater you start with. The cut piece of sweater for the bird tote happens to measure 15 inches wide by 12 inches tall.

Turn the sweater right side out, cut a bird pattern from the cotton fabric, and hand stitch it onto the sweater as seen below.

The dimensions of the print fabric will depend on the sweater dimensions. Use the same width as the sweater and add 5 inches to the length. Since my sweater was 15" x 12", my print fabric measures 15" x 17".

The Real Deal: The thrifted sweater and fabric cost about $10.
