If you are looking for a big bag to take to craft class with you then you are definitely going to love this one.
Not all craft rooms are large and we found this when we took our rolling craft trolly to one venue. It took up way too much room. So we decided we needed a new option for taking our sewing accessories with us and this is what we came up with – it’s a very large craft bag. It holds a cutting mat, rulers, and all the other bits and pieces that you need to take with you.
Its roomy, its reversible and it looks great and it will also make a great market bag.
The finished bag measure approx. 19½” wide x 22″ and the side gussets measure 4″.
WHAT YOU NEED:
You will need 2 pieces of contrasting fabric.
- Main fabric – 2 yards
- Lining fabric – 1½ yards
Cut your fabric as follows:
Main: 1 piece of fabric – 46″ x 20½”
Lining: 1 piece of fabric – 46″ x 20½”
Handles: 2 pieces from main fabric – 30″ x 5″
- Outside pocket – 2 pieces from lining fabric each piece measuring 8″ x 20½”
- Inside pockets – 4 pieces from main fabric each piece measuring 8″ x 20½”
Gussets: 2 pieces from main fabric – 5″ x 21″
2 pieces from lining fabric – 5″ x 21″
I cant provide the yardage for the interfacing as fusible fleece comes in a variety of widths and sizes. Please note: you can also use batting.
Main: 1 piece of Fusible Fleece – 46″ x 20½ can be slightly smaller
Handles: 2 pieces Fusible Fleece or batting – 2″ x 30″
Lining: 1 piece medium weight iron on interfacing – 46″ x 20½”
Pockets: 3 pieces medium weight iron on interfacing – 8″ x 20½”
