Use this method to stitch out all the pieces required for the bag. I have a large hoop, so I put as many piece in per hooping to save on fabric and stabilizer
Hoop 1 layer of cutaway stabilizer. Stitch the first color. Place a piece of cot- ton fabric over the stitched area. Stitch the next two colors.
Place a piece of fabric on the underside of the hoop and stitch the next color. Trim away excess fabric from both sides of the hoop and stitch the last color.
Assemble the bag
Use a 4.5mm zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine to put the bag together. Stitch Design 2 and 3 to De- sign 1 (Do the same with the remaining pieces—you should have two pieces that look like the photo) These make the front and back of the bag.
Now stitch Design 4 to the the sides of the front bag (one on either side). Now stitch the back of the bag to one side piece.
Now stitch the open side to the back piece of the bag.
Stitch the base seam of the bag closed.
To complete your bag, cut open the holes and thread ribbon through to make either handles or ties.
