By editing one of the craftsy free bag class patterns, I have now made a reversible bag.
For anyone wanting to do the same, it’s the drawstring bag, just with 2 solid pieces (no “front piece”), and I left spaces for the drawstring in both the interior and exterior, then made sure to line them up when I sewed those parts together.
It worked out great, and you should be seeing some reversible bags in my etsy shop soon!
I don’t know what to do with all these test bags. Once I’ve tested out their durability a bit, I don’t usually have enough small projects going on at once to use them all. We don’t have lunch outside of the house enough to make having a bunch of lunch bags worth it. And everything else I can think to store in them already has a place to be stored. I’m thinking about giving them away, but the truth is I usually make the test bags a little sloppier than the bags I sell (don’t bother ironing seams and such), and I don’t want people judging my quality by the test bags. So it’s a dilemma. #Firstworldproblem
