Back in Feb 2007, I tried to make my first bag. Without a pattern, I went ahead and cut a cotton canvas fabric I bought from Ebay UK. It was a very straightforward bag where I just cut 2 rectangles. Without knowledge of any techniques, I went ahead and sewed all 3 sides. Then I made an exact replica for the lining and then sewed the lining and main fabric together. After that, my sister showed me how to turn the lining right side out.
Here's the very first kikay bag!
