When I first started sewing all I made were bags and purses, I was too afraid to attempt patterns and fitting. I have been eyeing these waxed canvas bags from Moop for ages. So, since these beautiful bags are out of my price range and it has been so long since I made a bag for myself, I decided to create my own. First, I had to figure out how to make waxed canvas as it is nowhere to be found in stores or online. I was excited to find Otter Wax designed specifically for waxing canvas. Once I collected all my supplies… red canvas, leather straps, wax, and hardware… I started drawing my plan out on graph paper. Once I had an idea of all the pieces I created pattern pieces out of tracing paper. I’ve managed to sew up the exterior and I have a couple coats of wax on it. It shouldn’t be long until I have a completed waxed canvas bag!
