Practical and fun!
You just need to have a basic knowledge of sewing and that's it!
(note: I made the bicycle embroidery on my Singer Futura Embroidery Machine.I can custom make you if you want one =) )
THINGS YOU NEED:
1/2 yard fabric
2 pieces of velcro
And basic sewing supplies

Step 1: Cut the Fabric
Cut 2 pieces of 11" (28 cm) by 9 1/2" (24 cm) fabric (seam allowance included)
If you're going to do embroidery, do it now!
Step 2: Cut the Flap
Cut the flap 3 1/2" long 11" wide (2 pieces)
*Sew the flap together, leaving one side open
Step 3: Place and Sew Velcro
Step 4: Attach the Flap
Attach the flap to the bag.
Then top stitch on the back
Step 5: Cut and Sew the Straps
*Cut 2 straps on fold 7"(18 cm) long 3" (7,5 cm) wide
*Sew them close leaving a little bit of opening for flipping them
*Top stitch around after you flip them
Step 6: Sew Velcro on Straps
Step 7: Place and Sew the Straps On
Place the straps to the back of the bag and sew them.
(You can do this step right in the beginning, before sewing the bag together)
The best thing about using a striped fabric is that you can use the stripes as guidelines.
