This is what you’ll need to get started:
Heat n Bond
Scrap fabric for appliques
1 15×30 inch piece of fabric for outside of bag
2 25-30×4 inch pieces of fabric for straps (length depends on how long you want your straps to be)
2 pieces of fabric for pocket (I made mine 7×8 inches, although you could make them whatever size you want!)

First, iron in the sides about 1/2 inch. Then, fold it in half and iron again. Pin, and stitch a 1/4 inch seam on both edges. Easy!
Yahoo! Let’s keep going.
Now, to square off the bottom. Measure about 1 1/2 inch from both ends and flatten it like the picture shows. Pin and sew along where you pinned. (back stitch a bit at the beginning and end for stability) Cut off triangle about 1/2 inch from your seam. Turn inside out and admire your work. Repeat for the lining fabric.
Mine is Orbit Sweet Mint…never leave home without it! I will draw a winner Saturday, July 11th. Good luck!!
