We have made a little retro-ish tulip print into a mini Boston bag. The bag, which is small but big enough to put a long wallet in, is handy for a quick outing. You can also use it as a cosmetic bag.
The key point for the beautiful finish is lining up the handle patches equally on the bag. It seems a simple tip, but actually the bag will not look nice if the patches are either crooked or unequal. Keep in mind that these are most observable parts!
Pin the match mark and the center of bottom to sew the gusset piece and body panels together. Be sure to keep the meeting point of zipper and bottom gussets, if not aligned the bag’s right and left height won’t be even. Once you stop sewing on the curve of the body, your bag will lose its curved shape. To avoid the misshaped, quickly sew the curve line without stopping.
