You’ll Need:

  • 1 yard (0.9 metre) of Exterior Fabric (check the a Fabric Inspiration for Bag Making post)
  • 1 yard (0.9 metre) of Lining Fabric
  • 1 yard (0.9 metre) of solid fabric (quilting cotton or leather) for piping, straps, and accents
  • 3/4 yard (0.7 metre) of foam interfacing (By Annie’s Soft and Stable, Pellon Flex Foam, Bosal In-R-Form, or automotive headliner; if using Flex Foam, it is only 20” wide so please purchase 2 yards, or 1.8 metre).  Another option is EVA Foam Underlayment – it is cheaper and doesn’t crease as the foam interfaces.  Give it a try!
  • 3 yards (2.75 metre) of 20” wide Pellon SF-101 Shape Flex fusible woven interfacing (or medium-weight fusible)
  • Optional: 1/4 yard (0.25 metre) of Pellon Peltex #71F one-sided fusible ultra-firm interfacing (for a firm bottom)
  • Four 1” wide (2.5cm) metal buckles
  • Four 1” wide (2.5cm) metal rectangles
  • Optional: 4 purse feet
  • Two 12” regular zippers (30.5cm)
  • Handbag zipper (24” for small, or 30” for medium and large, or 60cm and 76cm respectively)
    For optional piping:
  • 2 yards (1.8 metre) of 5/32” cotton cording (I use Dritz Cable Cord) – 2-2/3 yards needed for size large
  • 2 yards (1.8 metre) of 1/2” (1.25cm) wide Pellon Wonder Under fusible web tape (or washable glue stick)
