Tuesday Tips: newspaper handbag muslin

GET IT?!?! OMG a visual pun, when will it ever stop? 

We'll continue this week's bag theme with a bag-related tip. If you're drafting your own pattern and want to work out the proportions or construction order, you can do a practice run with paper and a stapler. Cut the paper and use the staples like thread.

Make notes as needed (like pocket placement, shown below), disassemble the "bag" and then you'll have your pattern pieces!

What do you think of my new messenger bag? Tres chic, no?
