How to make Ankara bags
A lot of women wish to make Ankara bags by themselves. They don’t want to spend too much money. Let’s find out how to do it.
What do you need:
1. An old bag.
2. Ankara fabric.
You can use an old one bag to refashion something new. Remove all the clamps and zippers from it. If you can’t do it with your hands, use the knife. Remember not to break them. You will need those clamps. If the material of your handbag is shabby or flaky then these limitations must be removed. Don’t forget to cut the clutch lining. Just cut the seams open to clip the drapery over the edge and glue it inside between the insert and the purse material.
Then choose the Ankara fabric you would like to use. Measure it on the bag. It is important to know the size of the fabric and how the prints will be placed on the bag. You need to sort of wrap the clutch in the material. Record the size by putting some marks on the cloth. Then open the clutch and fasten the fabric over the upper part. Go all the way around the bag to the other side. Be sure to leave about 5 cm extra material on each side. At this stage, cut out the textile.
If you have hot glue, you can use it. But the usual transparent universal adhesive is also suitable for fabric. Just make sure you do not use instant glue. Now, begin to glue the cloth from the lower edge that you cut loose. Leave some extra material at the top for clamping over the edge. Spread the gum on the front part of your bag. Glue the textile. Then fix the measurement and glue it between the clutch textile and the lining. Make a crisp bend, add some more adhesive and don’t forget to pull the fabric to avoid wrinkles. Now you need to cut the over measure strips on the sides of your purse. The top edge should fit well inside the handbag. Now smear the rest of the bag with adhesive and glue the fabric. As you remember, you have cut loose all the bag’s lining. Now you must roll the over measure over the part with the holds fixes. Apply glue inside. Then hide this distance between the lining and the material of the bag.
The next step is to affix the sides of your purse. You can cut off the bottom part of the fabric. Apply the gum to the clutch side. Now glue the fabric. Are you tired? We will finish soon. But the result will be nice we think.
Now you need to find and cut the clamp openings which are glued over the Ankara fabric.
Cut pieces can be glued only after inserting the clamps. So apply gum inside the purse and fasten the lining (all the edges of fabric will be hidden inside). And look what you have done! What do you think?
