About a month ago she showed me a picture of a carrier and asked me if I could make one. I looked everywhere and could not find a tute on making one (grant it though, I'm a terrible internet researcher!) so I decided to try to make one myself. I made a lot of mistakes, but I now know what to do differently next time. I'm going to make myself a small one to carry in my purse. (if I can ever find the time!)
The picture above is the pocket, I took the two main pieces and folded it in thirds. I wanted the middle section for the oils and the bottom section for two pockets and nothing on the top section. I measured across the material and added about an extra 1/4 in. I made the pocket 5x12 1/4 inches. I then sewed them right sides together and left an opening to turn it.
Remember that all of this is being sewn to the right side of the inside fabric only. You don't want all those sewing marks seen on the other side.
I then put the right sides of the two main pieces together, make sure your Velcro is on the right ends! I started sewing around the edges, starting and stopping at the middle sections since I did not want to sew down the middle flaps. I then turned it wrong side out and ironed down the edges folded under. Cara did mention it would be nice to have a ribbon so she could fold the bag one more time to put in her purse. I would add those now to the middle of the backside of the black middle section. Now sew around the entire bag.
Here is the back of the folded bag, with oils in the bag.
