These bags are based on a feature in Patchwork and Quilting Magazine some time ago. However I have altered the dimensions and proportions. It also works with pieced pockets or a flip and sew technique, or even chenilling. You are only limited by your imagination. Enjoy!
The finished bag is 12” (30cm) tall and has: a draw cord four pockets around the outside of the bag and a 6” (15cm) square base.
30” (75cm) of fabric for the bag itself 30”(75cm) of fabric for the lining Interfacing, either fusible or medium weight 6½” x 35”(16.5 x 89cm) of Vilene
An optional requirement is a small piece of wadding, 6½” square (16.5cm) for the base.
You will also need: A sharp rotary cutter, a cutting board, a ruler, pins, scissors, pencil or marker, appropriate threads, and 120” (3 m) of cord or tape for the draw string.
