Inside Pockets for Hermione Granger Style Bag

Hello Everyone!

In May last year made a tutorial and a post on how to make a bag similar to Hermione Grangers beaded bag. The reason I made the bag was for my daughter’s costume for Oz Comic-Con and as I said in the previous post, this is my version and not a replica. About two weeks ago I was asked to make an inside pocket for the bag and now I have made a tutorial for two types of pockets.

Since it is a drawstring bag with quite thick materials, lace and beads, it isn’t really an option to just sew a pocket on the lining, which would be very easy to do if it was a tote bag. So instead I made two different pouches with an elastic loop that can be buttoned on to a big button that is stitched in to the lining of the bag. The pouches I made are suitable for a small phone, but the size can be easily be adjusted as desired. If you want a much bigger pocket you should consider making a bigger bag. A too big pocket will change the shape of the bag when it is closed.

You can find the tutorial here and on my tutorials page.

Take care and happy sewing!

Annika
