I always keep my cover bags and samples so that they're available for me to double check any questions or queries by makers after the pattern has released....but a big pile of finished bags is really starting to cramp my style, so it was time to do something about it!
I have tried hanging them on hooks in the studio, which is lovely to see them all displayed, but they can get dusty, and the sun comes in the studio window all day, and I didn't want them to fade from sun exposure. So super quick dust bags was the answer!
I'm going to demonstrate on a bag for the Pampering Pouch, but I'll show you how to calculate your sizes for the bag you want to protect.
First up I laid the empty bag down flat to measure. You want a bit of wiggle room, so be slightly generous on your measuring. I measured my pouch to be 16"W x 10" H x 4" D. I want an extra inch on both the top and bottom, and each side, so will add two inches in total to each measurement.
My basic measurements now are 18" x 12".
But I want it to be 5" deep. Because I'm going to do boxed corners, half the depth will need to...
