1 fat quarter (18" by 21") in festive fabric
1 piece of ribbon about 24 inches long
Sewing Machine and Basic Sewing Supplies
Step 1: Fold your fat quarter in half, right sides together.
Fold your Fat Quarter to maximize the width of the finished bag
When folded your piece should measure 18 inches by 10 1/2 inches,
as per diagram below.
21" 10 1/2"
Step 2: Fold the ribbon in half and lay it on the inside of your folded fabric
about four inches down from the top, so that the ribbon ends extend inside
the fabric and the folded end sticks out past the edge about 1/2 inch. Pin in place.
Step 3: Starting next to the fold, sew along the bottom edge of the bag using
a 1/2 inch seam allowance. One-half inch from the edge, stop with your needle down.
Lift your presser foot, turn the fabric 90 degrees and sew up the side, back-tacking over
the ribbon for extra stability
Step 4: Cut the top open edges with pinking shears to prevent raveling. Turn right side out.
