‘Torquay’ – Mod ’60s Retro Bag Sewing Pattern for the Cricut Maker
Welcome to Torquay (!), a pattern designed especially for the Cricut Maker, which will enable you to make simple nautical (certainly when made in stripes!) bag in a ‘60s style with contrasting sections and piped trim. The body of the bag angles slightly inwards and the strap is finished off with a large buckle for aesthetic reasons (it fastens magnetically for practical reasons!). If you want to get an idea of how easy it is to prepare then please check out our article on Making a ’60s-style bag with the Cricut Maker.
Dimensions of finished bag:
Width: 25cm (at widest point)
Fabric 1 (main): 30cm x 80cm (12” x 32”) remnant (we used 100% cotton canvas in royal blue and white horizontal stripe)
Fabric 2 (contrast): 30cm x 140cm (12”x 55”) remnant (we used red oilcloth)
Lining: 30cm x 140cm (12”x 55”) remnant
7cm wide buckle
1 magnetic fastening (16mm in diameter)
Plastic canvas (4xA4 sheets)
460cm (5 yards) x polyester boning (12mm wide)
60cm (24”) cord for piping (5mm in diameter)
28cm clear PVC flexible plastic tubing (16mm in diameter)
Cricut Maker with cutting mat (we used the lilac strong grip mat) and rotary cutting blade, Cricut-compatible pen (preferably washable fabric pen), sewing machine, iron (or press), piping (or zipper) foot, Wonderclips, awl, scissors
You can really use any fabric you like for this – however, we recommend something hard-wearing, such as upholstery fabric to make the bag sturdy and capable of standing up. For the contrast, a similar fabric or any type of faux leather or PVC will work. We used:
Main: 100% cotton canvas
Contrast: Red PVC Oilcloth
