2/3yardfusible fleece interfacingoptional but makes the bag much sturdier
From your first fabric cut 2 pieces that are about 13 inches across by 15 inches long. This will be the outside of the bag.
Cut the same from your second fabric. This will be the inner fabric.
Cut straps that are about 4 inches across by 27 inches long from either fabric.
From your fusible fleece, cut 2 pieces that match the size of the straps you already cut. Also cut 2 rectangles that are 13 by 15 inches long.
Fuse the interfacing to the back of your main fabric by ironing it.
Put right sides of the two large pieces of main fabric together and sew around the sides and bottoms. Do the same with your inner fabric.
Now let’s make the straps. Fuse the interfacing to the underside. Fold the straps in half lengthwise so that right sides are touching and sew up the long side.Turn right side out and press so that the seam is in the center of the back
Turn the inner part of your bag right side out. The outer part should still be inside out.
Slide the inner party down into the outer part: (right sides are together inside).
Slide your straps down between the two layers on each side. Here they are laying on top of the bag, how I want them. Then I just need to slide them in.
Put them in place inside and pin them.
Sew all the way around the top leaving a small 3 or 4 inch opening on the side to turn it.
Turn right side out. Press the top edge and press closed the opening, then top stitch all the way around the top to close the opening and make it look nice. And you are done!
