Bali Bags – AT102
Shaping the sides is the most difficult part of the pattern. Make sure that you sew rope to rope (don’t just catch fabric in your zig or zag stitch) and that you are keeping the bottom of the bag vertical as you sew. If the bag leans toward the sewing machine the top of the bag will angle inward. If the bottom leans away from the sewing machine the top of the bag will angle outward.
If you want a large beachy bag purposely lean the bottom away from the sewing machine
