The darts at the bottom of the handbag make super that your handbag won’t be just an envelope, the darts will give it volume. I use specific sizes in this tutorial, however, you can use any other measurements and when you draw your darts they don’t even need to form a square as is the case in this tutorial.
The darts are made in the bottom corners of the handbag, so you will have to measure and draw a darts four times. Measure 2 cm from both sides of the corner and join both points. Then join their intersection with the corner. Do the same this in the other corner, then turn the canvas around and repeat on the corners from the other side.
Open both corners and sew where the straight line is. That will be your dart. If you chose different sizes and your darts don’t make a square, you won’t get a straight line in this step – that’s fine, just stitch alongside the line that you drew.
Cut the corners.
When you turn the lining right side out this is what the dart will look like.
