Simple Storage Bag
Project by Angela Harkness
Create a simple storage bag to keep toys tidy at home or on the go!
Jungle Patterns fat quarter pack
Fabric snap fasteners/poppers
Step 1: Cut out fabrics:
· 4 pieces 7” x 11” (top piece)
· 4 pieces 10” x 11” (bottom piece)
· 2 pieces of H250 stabiliser 7” x 11”
· 2 pieces of H250 stabiliser 10” x 11”
Step 2: Adhere the stabiliser to the back of the outer and lining fabrics using a dry iron. Join the top and bottom fabric pieces with a ¼” seam allowance. Repeat this for the front and back outer fabrics and the front and back lining fabrics. Press each seam open and flat.
Step 3: Stitch the front and back panels together along the two side seams and the bottom seam, making sure the seams are aligned. Repeat for the lining, leaving a turning gap in one side seam.
Step 4: Lie out the bag flat and cut out a 2.5” square bottom left and bottom right. Open out the seam, stitch in place to ‘box’ the bottom of the bag. Repeat for lining piece.
Step 5: Insert the lining in the outer bag so right sides are together, clip in place and then stitch along the seam joining the outer and lining fabrics.
Step 6: Turn through the turning gap in the lining and then stitch this gap closed. Press the top seam and then topstitch in place.
Step 7: Attach snap fasteners to the bag top and then it’s ready for your toys on the go!
