PLEASE NOTE: This pattern consists mostly of rectangle shapes, therefore, there are only 2 printable pattern pieces. The remaining pieces are cut to measurement to save on paper and avoiding a very large document. If you intend to make this bag often, I recommend preparing your own templates out of card stock or something similar.
Lining fabric: 1 yard quilt weight cotton
Note: all fabric quantities will vary depending on fabric width and fabric print (for fussy cutting).
Notions and supplies:
Measurements: 11” W x 14.5” H x 5” D
SEWING EXPERIENCE: This project is suitable for an intermediate sewist. Preparation time will likely take the longest because construction is fairly straightforward, consisting mostly of straight lines. It will take approximately 5-6 hours for your first, less time for subsequent bags.
PLEASE NOTE: This pattern is in ENGLISH only.
