Colorful coordinates come together to create two versions of a fun summer bag.
Finished bag: 12 x 8-1/2 x 3 inches (without strap) Quantities are for 44/45-inch-wide, 100% cotton fabrics. All measurements include a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.
The following instructions are to make the turquoise/lime green bag. To make the pink/orange bag, use the instructions given, but substitute mottled pink for mottled turquoise, solid orange for solid lime green, pink and orange prints for the green and turquoise prints, and pink floral for blue floral.
Fusible interfacing comes in a variety of weights. For bag making, look for the heaviest weight, designed for home decorating or craft uses. If you want more body, consider using two layers of interfacing.
To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the order that follows.
