Hello, readers of the Nest! I'm back with another simple sewing project. I wrote a post on how to make a drawstring bag 
the other day and today I'm sharing another bag tutorial. This time, a sling bag! Are you ready?

What you need

Fabric dimensions are as below:

1 piece of 32 cm x 15 cm fabric;

1 piece of 33 cm x 16 cm fabric

2 pieces of 1.5 cm x 12 cm fabric.

Step 1: Take the largest piece of fabric (33 cm x 16 cm) and fold 0.5 cm inward. 
This will be the inside part of the bag. It will help a lot if you could iron the folding :)

Step 2: Stitch the two big rectangular fabrics together. Note: my sewing machine broke down 
so I have no choice but to handsew this. Feel free to use your sewing machine if you have one!

Step 3: Take your strap and sew or glue both ends to the smaller fabrics.

Step 5: Add a pair of snap fasteners.

Step 6: This is actually optional, but I prefer to cover the snap fasteners with cuter buttons ;)
