One of the great joys of sewing is seeing someone's face light up when you've made something just for them. I made this library bag for my Son, and his reaction was just that!
Here's how to make a simple library bag.
Start by cutting two rectangles for your front and back. These can be any size you like, I went for 45cm x 38cm, which fits most large books.
You'll also need two strips for your straps. These can be any length you like and should be tailored to fit the height of the intended user, so the bag isn't dragging on the floor when it's on their shoulder.
I cut two pieces 70cm x 6cm (this provides a finished strap width of 3cm)
