Materials
  • 1 yard of durable material such as nylon, denim or canvas.
  • 18" Purse Zipper
  • 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 yards of 1" webbing (The shorter amount will give you enough for a hand hold. The longer the webbing strap, the more strap you will have for putting the bag on your shoulder etc. The webbing seen here is available at Trimsplus.com as of 9/9/09)
  • 1 package of Wright's Maxi Piping
  • Thread
  • Optional Embroidery
Cutting
  • Cut two 12.5" circles (Use a template such as the fast2cut Templates - Foolproof Circles, an Embroidery Hoop, or a kitchen plate or pan. The circles should measure 12 1/2" across the center of the circle.)
  • Cut one rectangle 19 1/2" by 35"
  • Gently melt the ends of the webbing with heat to stop the webbing from raveling.
