hula fabric bags
I bought fabric in Hawai’i to make bags for my daughter’s hula sisters.  Yes, my daugter dances hula.  You can read about her halau {here}.
The girls have items they have to carry to hula practice each week.  It’s much easier if they can leave their hula stuff in their bag between practices.
I found a great tutorial  for a reversible fabric bag at Skip to My Lou.  I’m really not much of a seamstress and I found the directions very easy to follow.  If you’re a beginning seamstress, like I am, then you’ll find these instructions for beginners helpful. The bags go together pretty quickly, so if you’d like to try sewing a reversible bag, this is the one to try.

I adapted the pattern slightly to make the bags longer. Originally, I wanted to make a longer bag so that the girls could carry puili in the bags along with their other items.



Last week we found out that my daughter’s group will be using an ipu for their next dance.  Fortunately, the ipu will fit in the bag.  Whew.


The bags turned out cute and let me say again how easy they were to make.

    1. Jocie, thanks for sweet words. I’ve been more than a little scared of any sewing project more difficult than sewing on a button. But I keep seeing all these adorable projects with very clear tutorials, so slowly, very slowly, I’m trying some of them out. So far most so good. Some are better than others, but nothing has exploded yet, so I’m satisfied (and even a little proud of a couple of projects. 🙂

    2. I feel the same way, proud of my small sewing projects. I’m about to attempt a sewn tutu for my daughters for their upcoming birthdays but my fear has led to a bit of procrastination. lol!
