Library Book Bag Tutorial and Give-Away!
Hello, Friends!  I'm Amy of Amy Made That! and it's time to present Part 3 in the Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool series. 

{Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 of this three part series.}

Today I'll show you how to make this Library Book Bag!  It's Elementary, my dear!

Library Book Bag Tutorial
LIBRARY BOOK BAG

{The finished tote measures about 11" x 11" x 4".}

Supplies:
  • 2 fabric scraps for hexagon centers
  • 10 fabric strips, each cut to 1 3/4" x 22"  {I used 8 different fabrics, repeating 2 of them for the outer hexagon rounds.}
  • 1/2 yard exterior and handle fabric
  • 1/2 yard lining and handle fabric
  • 5" x 7" scrap, for library card pocket
  • 1 yard fusible fleece, such as Pellon 987F
  • Fusible web, such as Heat N Bond - 12" x 6"
Library Book Bag Tutorial
PREPARE HEXAGON APPLIQUES:

Begin by making 2 hexagons, using the Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool... except don't trim the block into the final hexagon yet.  I began with the 4" center hexagons. 
{Each block will be 8 1/2" from side to side when finished.}

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Cut fusible web strips:
  • (6) pieces, 1" x 6"
  • (6) pieces, 1" x 3 1/2"
Follow manufacturer's directions to fuse 3 longer strips of the fusible web to the back of each untrimmed hexagon, as shown above. 
Be sure to cover the fabric past the final trimming marks
that are shown in the photo.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Leave the paper backing in place, and add the 3 shorter pieces of fusible web to the back of each hexagon, as pictured.  It's okay if there is a bit of overlapping of the fusible web.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Now use the Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool to cut the finished hexagons.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Here are my two Elementary hexagons, ready for applique.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
CREATE EXTERIOR BAG PIECES:

Cutting:

  • (2) 14" x 14" exterior fabric
  • (2) 14" x 14" fusible fleece

Follow manufacturer's directions to fuse the fleece to the wrong side of both exterior pieces.

Remove paper backing from hexagon appliques.  Fuse hexagons in place on each exterior piece, centering the hexagons from side to side, but placing them 2" from the top.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Applique the hexagons to the exterior pieces.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
I love the blanket stitch on my sewing machine.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
{If you prefer you could sew the blanket stitch by hand, or use a zigzag or straight stitch on your sewing machine.}

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Cut a 2" x 2" square from both bottom corners of each exterior piece. 

Set exterior pieces aside.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
CREATE HANDLES:

Cutting:

  • (2) 2" x 14" exterior fabric 
  • (2) 2" x 14" lining fabric
  • (2) 3 1/2" x 14" fusible fleece
For the two-toned handles, pair one exterior piece with one lining piece, and pin along one long edge.

Stitch with a 1/4" seam and press seam to one side.  Repeat for the second handle.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Follow manufacturer's directions to apply fusible fleece to the wrong sides of the handle strips.

Press each handle in half along the lengthwise seam. Press each long edge under by 1/4".

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Pin the folded edges together, with raw edges enclosed. 
Stitch about 1/8" from each long edge, making sure to catch all layers.  Repeat for the second handle strap.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Position handles on the exterior bag pieces, with raw edges toward the top. 
Place each handle 3 1/2" from the sides, with about 5" between handles.  Baste into place about 3/16" from top edges.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
STITCH EXTERIOR BAG TOGETHER:

Place front and back exterior bag pieces, right sides together, and pin in place.  {Handles will be inside the layers.}

Stitch the sides and bottom with a 1/4" seam, backstitching at beginning and end.  Re-stitch to reinforce seams.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Create boxed bottoms by pinning the cut-away areas, with side seams and bottom seams matched.

Library Book Bag Tutorial

Stitch 1/4" from raw edges, backstitching at beginning and end of seams.
Set exterior bag aside, without turning right-sides out.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
CREATE LIBRARY CARD POCKET:

Cutting:

  • (1) 5" x 7" pocket fabric
  • (1) 5" x 3 1/2" fusible fleece
Follow manufacturer's directions to fuse the fleece to the wrong side of the pocket, as shown.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Fold pocket in half, right sides together, where the fleece ends.  The pocket piece now measures 5" x 3 1/2".  Stitch 1/4" seams along each side, backstitching at beginning and ends of seams.

Turn and press the pocket piece.  Topstitch along the folded edge,  which will become the top of the pocket.  Set pocket aside.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
CREATE LINING:

Cutting:

  • (2) 14" x 14" lining fabric
  • (2) 14" x 14" fusible fleece
Follow manufacturer's directions to fuse fleece to wrong sides of each lining piece.

Position library card pocket with raw edges toward top, 6" from the top edge of one lining piece, and 4 3/4" from each side.  Pin into place.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Stitch 1/4" from raw edge of pocket, backstitching at start and end.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Flip the pocket up and press into place.  Topstitch the sides to secure the pocket to the lining.  Be sure to backstitch, especially at the top side edges of the pocket.  {Leave the top open, of course.}

Library Book Bag Tutorial
If you have a cute label, apply it now, just above the pocket.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Cut a 2" x 2" square from both bottom corners of each lining piece.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
STITCH LINING:

Place front and back lining pieces, right sides together, and pin in place.

Stitch the sides together with a 1/4" seam, backstitching at beginning and end.

Stitch the bottom edges of the lining together, but leave a 6" opening, for turning the bag right sides out.

{I always add backstitching from the edges of my opening to the raw edges.  This strengthens the opening seam when I'm turning the finished project right-sides out.}

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Create boxed bottoms by pinning the cut-away areas, with side seams and bottom seams matched.  Stitch 1/4" from raw edges, backstitching at beginning and end of seams.

Turn the lining right sides out.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
ATTACH THE LINING TO THE EXTERIOR BAG:

Place the lining inside the exterior bag, right sides together. 

Matching the side seams, pin or clip the top edges together.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Stitch the top with a generous 1/4" seam, catching the handles between the layers.  Re-stitch all around the top, to reinforce.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Turn the bag right sides out, carefully pushing the outer bag through the opening in the bottom of the lining.  Take your time...you can do it!

Neatly stitch the opening in the lining closed, by machine or by hand.

Push the lining into the exterior, and press the bag into shape with lots of steam.  Finally, add topstitching along the top edge to finish the bag.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Now fill your bag with some great library books and magazines.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
Prepare to convince people that you made your very own Library Book Bag!

Library Book Bag Tutorial
I love the front, with the text print about the months of the year.

Library Book Bag Tutorial
I call this the back, but I love it as much as the front side.  The lighter colored hexagon looks lovely against the wheat-colored linen exterior.  The aqua polka dot interior adds pizzazz!

Library Book Bag Tutorial
I can keep my library books accessible in this sharp-looking bag.  No excuses for overdue books!  I hope you'll try making a Library Book Bag, too!

    it's Elementary that a book bag is in the future works with possibly the Feed Company prints on it or a tabletoper.
  • 44. Posted by Helen on November 4th, 2014 at 4:11 p.m.
    I'd make a quilt but would have to look at the fabric for awhile (and stroke it!) until it helped me decide on a pattern that would set off the gorgeous fabric!
  • 45. Posted by Sharon Ingalls on November 4th, 2014 at 3:21 p.m.

  • 49. Posted by lynn on November 4th, 2014 at 11:04 a.m.
    Your tutorial makes a bookbag look very appealing. Also, I think a table cloth would be nice with this fabric. Thank you for this opportunity!
  • 50. Posted by Denny on November 4th, 2014 at 9:35 a.m.
    The options are endless, but I believe I would make a nap quilt and back pack for my granddaughter who will be entering preschool next year! Can't you just see her nap mat connected to the bottom of her back pack?
  • 51. Posted by Mary Hughes on November 4th, 2014 at 9:17 a.m.
    These are great colors for almost anything! They would go with most decors, so I would make something for a friend.
  • 52. Posted by Maria Naito on November 4th, 2014 at 8:16 a.m.

  • 58. Posted by Shawna P on November 4th, 2014 at 5:25 a.m.
    I'd make a runner for the front built in cupboards in my living room. These colours work perfectly.
  • 59. Posted by Brenda on November 4th, 2014 at 4:34 a.m.
    In all honesty, I don't know what I would make. I'd have to see and play with the fabrics and let them talk to me. I'm sure they would end up in a quilt, but I'm not certain what kind. Love the Library book bag tutorial. The library card pocket is a great idea -- saves digging in your wallet when you have a huge stack of books. I'd probably have to make more than one to manage all of my library book useage! Or triple the size!
  • 60. Posted by Eileen on November 4th, 2014 at 4:29 a.m.
    I would love to make a tote to use for books when I travel

    I would love to win this awesome fabric to make the ever so cute library tote bag. The reason I would love to make this tote is to pick up and deliver to my elderly friends, audio CD's. once a week from our local library.. You see they have lost their eye sight at the age of 90+.Listening to the audio books helps put in their day. Please remember every time you sit down to sew how luck you are to have your eye sight.

    How sweet!! The fabric is adorable! I would make this sweet little bag for a recent widow and her young daughter. The Mom takes her daughter to the library frequently to get books. I would also embroider her initials on the bag to make it more her own. She LOVES to read. This would be perfect for her. Thanks for a very well put - together tutorial. :)

  • 81. Posted by Linda W on November 3rd, 2014 at 3:50 p.m.
    I would definitely make a book bag for my daughter, daughter in law, and good friend who lives across the street and is ill. I know it would cheer her up! I love this bundle so much--have actually bought a couple of these already!!
  • 82. Posted by Timtirim on November 3rd, 2014 at 3:49 p.m.
    This library book bag is a great idea! I am sometimes late with giving the books back, and you are right, this is a great reminder. I will make this bag soon. And I would sew a lap quilt from this bundle. Thanks for the chance!
  • 83. Posted by John Hutchens on November 3rd, 2014 at 3:15 p.m.

    I just finished a quilt for a nursing home; my quilt guild is donating 100 by Thanksgiving! I would probably make another charity quilt, because they are fun to do - working with great fabric, the satisfaction of completion and a job well done, and knowing it will go to someone who will cherish it!

That's what I'd use the fabric for!!! Love to do it after losing my sister to brain cancer last year. Gotta give back :)
