What You'll Need

  • 1/2 yard of medium-weight fabric (standard 44" wide) for the straps and inside patch pocket. (Straps are cut on the cross grain; for directional fabrics, buy 1 yard and cut the straps on the long grain.)

  • 1/2 yard cotton canvas (standard 60" wide)
  • 1 1/2 yards heavy sew-in interfacing (or 1/2 yard if using heavy-weight fabric for the exterior)

  • Two 1 1/4" - 1 3/4" o-rings
  • One magnetic snap
  • Four small rivets
  • One 7" zipper
  • One 1" - 1 1/2" button
  • Small scrap of lightweight fusible interfacing (approximately 2" x 9")
  • Note: A walking foot is strongly recommended, due to the number of fabric layers.
