Decide on the size and purpose of the future product. So, for example, if you need a travel bag for girls, it is worth considering that it should fit in a large bag for travel. In this case it should include at least a book, notebook or Notepad, pens and pencils. If you need a beach bag, it should be more roomy. While various small accessories can sew a bagpocket.
Pick up the cloth needed accessories and materials to decorate the bags. Then make a pattern first on paper and then transfer it to the fabric with soap, chalk or water marker. For sewing handbags for girls you can use any fabric that does not stretch and quite pleasant to the touch. For example, you can have gabardine and the lining to make flannel. Optionally can also use denim, cotton, calico, satin, felt and other materials.
To make a bag pocket, figure out what it should be forms (for example, it can be round, square, trapezoid). Cut the fabric into two equal parts, sew them together and turn on the front side. You can sew the zipper or to attach any other type of fastener, then sew the long narrow handle. For the decoration of such handbags, you can use the appliques, beads, lace, embroidery or sequins.
If the bag assumes a more complex cut, make pattern fabric and lining. Then separately sew the top and lining. Then connect it with the upper part of the bag and sew them on top of the edge. This may be done in several ways. For example, 2-3 cm fold over the edges of the fabric on both sides inside and sew them up, stepping back about 3 mm from the edge. It is also possible to bond them together, using a separately tailored stripe-placket. Its length should correspond to the sum 3 of the lengths of the edges. First stitch the lining: sew the strap around the perimeter of the three sides of the pattern (the side of bag and bottom) front and back. Then do the same with the main fabric, then insert the lining inside the bag and the top vsheyte zip.
As for the handles, you can sew them inside or on the sides of the bag. To sew the handle inside before you sew the zipper, insert them between the face fabric and lining, baste to in the sewing process they did not move. Then prostrochite, at the same time lousy zipper. If you decided to make the side of the handle, first mark the distance on each side you will do. The edges of the handles tuck inside and sew to the front of the fabric (better to flash a few times, the joints were tight). Also alternatively you can sew to the bag ring, and have them attach the handle.
