Prior to class:
Make sure your sewing machine is clean oiled and in good working condition.
If you are using a charm pack you will need 4 additional 5” x 5” squares. If you are cutting all of your squares, cut 44-5” x 5”.
Cut your lining pieces:
From Lining fabric, cut two 27” x 18” pieces.
If using fusible fleece, cut 6 pieces 27” x 18”.
If using soft and stable, cut 2 pieces 27” x 18”.
For the Handles:
Cut one piece each of fabric and fleece 6 ½” x Width of Fabric.
Pockets & Closure:
Decide whether you want pockets. The pattern calls for 2 pockets. I like to have one larger pocket and one smaller cell phone pocket.
Cut 2 pieces 12” x 18” for the pockets.
For the Phone pocket:
Cut one piece of fabric 7” x 12” and one piece of fusible fleece 6” x 7”.
For the closure flap:
Cut one piece each of fabric, fleece, and décor bond (5" X 5" EACH)
For the magnet closure:
cut one piece each of décor bond and fusible fleece 4” x 4”.
