DIRECTIONS: Read all instructions before beginning project. Do not pre-wash fabrics. Use a ¼” seam allowance and sew fabrics with right sides together (RST) unless otherwise noted. Backstitch at the beginning and end of each seam to secure stitching. Before cutting, press fabrics with a dry iron on cotton setting. Label pieces as they are cut.

  • 4 – 7½”x10½” rectangles (bag & bag lining)
  • 1– 3”x18” rectangle (strap)

  • 2 – 2”x18” rectangles (ties)
  • Navy Small Hearts:
  • 4 – 3½”x8½” rectangles (bag band and bag band lining)
  • Heavy-weight interfacing:
  • 2 – 3½”x8½” rectangles (bag band)
