- Interfacing, 35 x 75 cm
- 1 Zipper, 18 cm
- 1 small metal ring
- 4 snap rivets
- 2 metal halfrings
- 1 metal slider
- 2 metal carabiners
- 170 cm bag strap, polyester (metal carabiners and slider should fit for width of bag strap).
- Small pieces of leather
- (Ribbon or bias for inside zipper pocket)

Iron on the interfacing on the fabric. Then fold back about 1,5 cm on upper and lower edge of the fabric`s short side. Iron it well.
(I have sewn a silk ribbon around the inside zipper pocket, but it is not necessary).
Then fold back the fabric and the lining after 24 cm, pin and sew the bag pieces --> foto.
Insert the inside lining bag into the outside fabric bag.
Sew on a small leather piece on the lid (you can use this for your label) or just as decoration --> foto.
Pin the fabric and the lining bag together and sew them about 5 mm away from the edges.
Don`t forget to insert the magnetic button in the bag and in the flap.
Prepare 2 halfrings for the bag handle holders. Use a small leather piece, wrap it around the halfring and make seam --> foto. Then attach one on each side of the bag with snap rivets (foto below).
Finish the bag handle with 2 carabiner hooks, one on each side, and the slider.
The boho flap bag fits well with a long dress. Style the bag with charms.
Enjoy the boho bag !
