3Umami Spiral Bag Tutorial by grrl+dog www.grrlandog.com
Materials:1. A large square of fabric.
Why square? Because the first thing you do
is cut it into
acircle. For this tutorial I used a sturdy white cotton denim drill scrounged from the recycling shop. It was about a metre square. It made a bag roughly 20 cms high, by 20 cms deep and 27 across. Thefirst bag I made was much larger, perhaps 2 metres squared and it required much more sewing. Youcan make your bag any size, and from any fabric, as long as it can form a square.
2. Strong polyester thread.
As the cotton drill is tough and there will sometimes be upto four layers at a time being sewn avoid frustration and get strong thread.
3. 5 or 6 wound bobbins of matching thread,
because it’s annoying to have tostop and wind a bobbin.
4. A hundred pins -
go on, count them out.
5. A bandaid
because Murphy’s Law says you will prick your finger and bleed all over it like Idid.
6. Measuring tape or ruler7. Chalk or something to mark the circle with8. Sewing machine with a denim/leather needle.
