Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Everything is explained and illustrated, but some parts are a little tricky to do. I think you can do it!

Pattern Description:

This is one of the most complimented bags I carry. People are always asking me where I found it and their jaws drop open when I tell them that I made it.

If you need something romantic and sweet, but you would like it to hold a fair amount of contents, this is your bag.

Gluing the frame in is a little intimidating for people (and for me too) so I found a foolproof way of doing it, and I think you will love it!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Frame is 8" wide (20.3cm)
  • Bag is 8.5" tall (21.5cm)
  • 12" wide at bottom
  • 4.5" deep at bottom

Materials:

  • 8" kisslock frame
  • 1/2 yard fabric (you may need more if you are fussy cutting to
  • 1/2 yard lining fabric
  • 16" x 20" interfacing (#50 if you are making the bag of quilting
  • 16" x 20" warm and natural (or similar) batting
  • 5" x 12" Peltex 70 ultra firm stabilizer

You Will Also Need:

  • Glue (I use Beacon Quick Grip)
  • Tailor's chalk or disappearing ink
  • Small flat screwdriver or comparable implement
  • Scissors
  • Painter's Masking Tape
  • An index card or a couple of business card sized pieces of card
