Cutting Instructions

Please Note: These diagrams are not exactly to scale, but pieces fit as shown.

pattern First, cut out your pattern pieces. I use butcher paper, bought on a roll at Costco.

The Main Body piece measures 22" x 33".
The Inside Pocket piece measures 22" x 14".
The straps each measure 3.5" x 24". Make two handle patterns pieces.

NOTE: If you prefer, you can follow the directions later in this project for making handles using regular fabric and interfacing (rather than the double sided, prequilted fabric).

Start Main Bag Piece

stitch bottom of bag 1. Baste 1/8" from edge around main bag piece (to hold all layers together along edges).

2. Find the center of your main bag piece. Stitch a line 2" from each side of the center, as shown at right. This marks the bottom of the bag (front and back bottom edges).
