These bags are lots of fun to make. I realize I may have said this about the last few designs I have done, but these are super.
The set of three can be created out of just over a fat quarter of each top and lining, with a scrap of fabric to make the prairie point pulls. The magic is metal tape measure pieces and electrical tape to make the snapping closure.
One big lesson learned: do not use double sided fusible web interfacing in the casings at the top of the bag. It makes it very difficult to slide the tape measure pieces through.
There are more of these cut out and laying on my table ready to assemble for birthday gifts for my senior lady friends.
I hope everyone is finding fabulous projects to craft while this summer goes along.
