How to make a Winter BuggyBag … part I.

I will show you how to make a pattern for your buggy. OK, you could also buy the bag, but if you have a little time, you could make it yourself.

If you don’t have time to make your own pattern, then I have one more tip for you; …. I did make one more pattern, and you could get all the instructions and pattern itself on my Etsy TUTORIAL GIRL shop, or you could see the pictures here.

PS: I also make a Reversible Buggy Tote Bag with Arm Straps; so your buggy will be all you need for you and your kid.

The BUGGY-BAG … finised bag

This bag I made for my buggy and I just want to show you how it is make so you won’t make the same mistakes, or maybe you will get some new idea for your buggy.

I use what I wound in my fabric stash, cotton, velvet, padding.

Because the winter is out there it is perfect time to start sewing this project, it is not so difficult and if you have a basic sewing skill, you could do it.

I use what I wound in my fabric stash, cotton, velvet, and padding.

First you need a buggy and then you need to decide the basic shape of the BuggyBag.

 

 

Look closer too the points where you will attach the BuggyBag. Define the basic shape of the BuggyBag (the seating part), and measure the buggy (seating part and the back part). This will be your basic shape. Add also the bottom leg part).  
Cut the basic shape BuggyBag and don’t forged to put 1 cm more for seam
Define the side BuggyBag shape….my is long rectangle 12 cm high. Measure the length of the BuggyBag (both the side and the feet part); Cut 30 cm longer rectangle as you measure. Cat also the padding and sew it on the fabric with long seam. You could sew the Sandwich (inner worm fabric + padding + outer fabric).
Pin and sew the rectangle fabric to the base shape. Start in the center (shoes position), and go to the knees and stop there. Now bend the rectangle fabric in to the upper leg position and make a seam there. Cut the excess fabric and sew the rectangle to the end of leg position. During sewing repeatedly check BuggyBag installed on to the buggy.

 

Now define the top shape of BuggyBag. You could make this part with the zipper if you like. I cut almost the same shape as a basic BuggyBag. It was ok, but later when I put the child with winter cloths in the buggy it was too small, so I put one more Triangle.So my suggestion is: make the waist bigger then you measure it, and put some rope or some elastic in it. It is handy, because child could put there hands in to the buggy too.Small tip: When you will making this top part. Make it little bigger at first and make zipper or buttons or whatever closure you will use and then cut the shape you need.
The end of the first part of tutorial. In to the second part I will show you more pictures of my final BuggyBag.
