How-To: Triangle Bag


I adore the simplicity and style of this designer-inspired triangle bag from Between the Lines!

You can’t look past the Martin Margiela triangle bags on the net lately. I had seen this type of bags before, pre-Margiela, I mean, and a lot cheaper too. I liked the minimalism – they reminded me of Japanese bag folding, furoshiki. The ingenuity is striking – a good example of how to optimize under constraints (this is the economist in me speaking) or translated in sewing terms: how to make the largest bag possible given only a small piece of fabric.

Want to make a triangle bag of your own? Head over to Between the Lines to see the full tutorial!
