You can make your own pattern out of pattern paper, tissue paper, tracing paper or if you are like me and don’t have any I used the “thrifty method” of using newspaper.

Go to the list for needed pattern cuts and measurements*
Top, Sides and below them bottom – You can make this any size as long as you add for seam allowances.

( 1 yard fabric needed, thread and grosgrain ribbon 7/8 “)

Here are my measurements for the larger bag:
1. For handles 2 pieces of fabric cut 4″ wide x 25″ long
2. For front and back of bag 2 pieces of fabric 12″ wide x 14″ long
3. For sides 2 pieces of fabric 6″ wide x 11″ long
4. For bottom of bag 2 pieces fabric 14″ wide x 6″ long
Make sure you allow the same amount of fabric for your seam allowances~ So if you use 5/8″ add that to all your measurements.
With 1yard of fabric you will have left over material. I used mine for making bean bags. I will post an easy tutorial for that later. If you do the smaller bag you would have enough fabric left over for a Halloween pillow.
Step #1. Cut the fabrics listed above adding your seam allowances. Then press your seams over 5/8″ or slightly more as long as you use the same measurement for folds on all fabric.

#Step 2. Next you will be sewing all your finish seams prior to assembly of the bag. Your finish seams to fold over, iron in place and sew are: The tops of the bag both pieces front and back and the top of both the sides of the bag.
