Lesley's Strip Bag

I have designed this bag to make use of the 2.5" strip collections.

Please bring the following to the class:

Fabrics:

1 Strip Roll from the shop (10 strips minimum) or 10 strips cut at 2.5"x42" from your stash

50cm for sides and handles

1m for lining and pocket (if using the same fabric for sides, handles, lining and pockets, then 1.40m is enough)

Wadding:

28x40" minimum (75cm). I recommend 100% cotton or 80/20 for ease of sewing/quilting

Thread:

Cotton to tone for piecing the bag

Cotton for machine quilting (it will show!)

Equipment:

Sewing machine with all attachments, leads and manual. A new needle would be a help!

Rotary cutting equipment (mat, ruler and cutter)

Sewing equipment - pins, scissors, needles, etc...

Note book and pen.
