From the main fabric, measure and cut two 14″ x 15″ rectangles. Then measure and cut a 6″ x 8″ rectangle. Also measure and cut two 14″ x 15″ rectangles and one 6″ x 8″ rectangle out of the lining. I’m using the outer fabric pieces as templates. From the interlining measure and cut two 11″ x 14″ rectangles and one 6″ x 8″ rectangle.
Place the 6″ x 8″ rectangle on the bottom of one of the larger pieces with the right sides facing together. Center it so that there is 3″ on each side. Pin together and make quarter inch snips on each side. Stitch with a quarter inch seam allowance along the bottom. Take the opposite end of the smaller rectangle and center it on the bottom of the right side of the other large piece. Make sure there is 3″ on each side. Pin together, snip on each side, and stitch with a quarter inch seam allowance.
Measure and cut two pieces of webbing. One should be 16″ long and the other should be 20″ long. On the longer strip, fold the ends over a 1/2″ and stitch.
Place the shorter piece on one side of the bag and pin. Make sure there’s an inch and a half on both ends. On the other side, pin the longer piece along the top. Make sure there’s 3 1/2″ on each end.
