How to make your very own vintage no-sew top bag

I am going to show you how to make your own no-sew top bag!

(Click on the picture to see the full post)

Step 1 

Start off with an old top

(You can do it with a t-shirt and it is easier but I find that the bag is prettier with a top)

Step 2

Cut about 3 inches up from the bottom on both the left and the right side

Step 3

Turn the top inside out, and cut up 3 inches and across about 1 inch as shown

Step 4

Take one small piece from one side of the top, and tie it to the piece just underneath it

Step 5 

Continue to tie the sides together until it looks like this...

Step 6

Turn the top inside out again

Step 7

You can then use the tying affect for the sleeves to make the shoulder strap

Hey presto, here is the finished bag. Good luck ducks!

If you make any of your own no-sew top bags and are proud of your accomplishments, send me a photo and I'll upload it to my blog!
