I’ve got you covered: there are a few ways to do it, one option is adding a gusset Check out this popular messenger bag tutorial to sew a bag with a gusset. Canvas, stiff cotton or buckram are good to use too. This pattern uses two types of ‘interfacing’, both non-woven fusible fleece as stabilizer, and stiff woven interfacing. No fusible fleece? Use batting and quilt your lining to give it some extra body and stability. Use a layer of Vlieseline S320, Woven Fuse, or Shapeflex101 on the back of your fabric, THEN add a layer of stabilizer: Pellon Fusible fleece or Vlieseline H640.

Finally, accessorize your look with the right shoes and accessories. You’ll never look back, and your bag corners will look nicer!

The easiest way to upcycle an old piece of denim you don’t like is to make it into something you would wear. Hooded blankets make great baby blankets.
