Designed to print both the exterior bag and the lining (or to print two versions of the bag, with purchased fabric for lining, this eco-friendly bag will put a bit of Spring in your step!
This bag is intended to provide all of the materials needed to sew either one single lined bag that is 14.5" x 11" x 6" on 42" fabric or two bags: one with self-handles and the other with contrasting handles (using whatever fabric you choose to line the bag). There is no need to purchase coordinating material for contrasting handles if you opt to make the fabric out of the linen/cotton canvas, as the added width is filled the design intended for the handles.
The basic panel for each bag is 19" wide x 36" tall. The panel for the straps is 4" x 18". All of the seam allowances are intended to be 1/2" wide, but the "fold" lines" on the bag are outlined in green: when in doubt, preserve these design lines!
So here are the instructions:
When you get your 1 yard panel (fat quarters won't work, but yardages on fabrics that print at greater than 42" wide will be addressed in a future updated version of this file...), the first step is to cut vertically along the green lines so that you have two 19" x 36" panels, along with a single 4" x 36" panel for the straps.
Having separated the necessary pieces, the next step is to sew the side seams of your bag. Fold each 19" x 36" panel in half lengthwise and sew one green vertical line to another with a 1/2" seam allowance.
