Hey, fellow sewing enthusiasts! Today, I'm excited to share the magical journey of creating my very own Disney World park bag using the Bestie Bag sewing pattern from Blackbird Patterns. But more than just a bag, this project embodies the essence of slow fashion and the joy of crafting our own wardrobe pieces.


  • Bestie Bag sewing pattern from Blackbird Patterns
  • Main Fabric
  • Lining Fabric
  • Zipper
  • Additional Bag Hardware (optional if you'd like to add a strap slider, I opted for the tied version and did not need this)
  • Matching Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Fabric Marking Tool
  • Fabric Shears or Scissors

Let's dive into the fabric selection first. For this special project, I delved into my stash and unearthed some leftover corduroy from a previous sewing endeavor, originally snagged from the remnants section at my local JoAnn Crafts. Talk about sustainable and budget-friendly! And for the lining? A thrifted bedsheet stepped up to the plate, adding a unique touch to my creation. I LOVE this vintage floral pattern!

HOT TIP: Blackbird also sells Bestie Bag bundle kits which, not only include various choices in the fabric you'll need, but also all of the hardware necessary to sew this project (the pattern, however, is not included)

Now, onto the pattern itself. The Bestie Bag pattern proved to be a delightful companion throughout the sewing process. With detailed and thorough instructions, including a link to a step-by-step YouTube tutorial, it's perfect for beginners dipping their toes into sewing accessories or those eager to tackle more intermediate techniques like sewing zips.

I opted for the large size bag, and let me tell you, it had room to spare! As a mom juggling the essentials for my little ones – changes of clothes, diapers, snacks – this bag was an absolute lifesaver during our Disney adventures.

As we champion the slow fashion movement, let's embrace the magic of creating our own wardrobe pieces. Whether it's sewing your own park bag or crafting a spring capsule wardrobe, there's something truly empowering about putting our creativity into action.

So, grab your fabric, fire up that sewing machine, and let's infuse a little bit of Disney magic into our wardrobes, one stitch at a time!

Happy sewing, and may your adventures be filled with wonder and joy! 🧵✨
