At this point, I have almost completed my bag. All that is left to do is to join the inside of the bag to the outside. The technique I have decided to use is to join the top edges, and cover the unfinished edges with bias tape for a neat and tidy look.

To make the cover flap for your bag (my bag is a messenger bag), measure the length that you would like your flap to be. I measured from where I will be attaching it on the back, over the top opening (which the flap will cover) and down to the point I would like the flap to end on the front.

To make the strap for your bag, cut out two strips of fabric, twice the desired width of your strip, and to the desired length. I cut my strips 2” wide by 48” long. Cut out fusible interfacing the same length and width as your strips, or purchase strap interfacing (I purchased Clover Create-A-Strap with Nancy).

I’m sure most people have made these as kids, or a really hot day at the office. They are really simple to make, you simply take a piece of paper and make a number of folds in the paper. At the end, it sort of resembles an accordion.

Recently, my friends and I planned a shower for our friend Melissa. She is due at the beginning on June. I figured I would show off some of the photos of the super awesome cake that we made, as well as some of the food that we slaved over to make.
