Simplicity Pattern Number 2685!
Fabric will be due April 20th. This project is going to be QUICK!!!!
We will be sharing patterns so just know that this will take some extra time.  The patterns used will remain in the class.  If you want your own, that is your choice and your expense.  As always, please see me ASAP if you need help gathering materials!

We are making view D- you will need:
  • 17" X 19"- 1 and 1/4" yard for the outside of the bag - needs to be a canvas or a duck cloth (Hobby Lobby has a big selection)
  • Lining - 5/8 of a yard can be a cotton quilting weight fabric
  • Interfacing - 5/8 yard medium weight fusible interfacing.
  • The back of the pattern requires slightly different fabric weights and interfacing, but the combination I listed will probably be fine too and you can use interfacing that is fusible.

Here are some links you may peruse!
