Measure and Cut the following in fabric:
2 pieces of fabric 14″ by 30″ (outer and inner bag)
1 piece 3 1/2″ by 26″ (casing)
1 piece of 1/2″ ribbon measuring 2 yards
Fold your two long piece of fabric in half (right side to right side), sew each down the sides and finish the edges with a zigzag stitch.
Turn one of the pieces right side out. Place the lining inside outer fabric with wrong sides together, matching side seams.
Pin them together, starting at the seams and zigzag stitch together close to edge. Set aside.
Take your casing piece of fabric and press each short end down 3/8″ and stitch to closed.
Fold casing in half, lengthwise, and zigzag edges together leaving ends open. Match casing on outer fabric of bag with the ends meeting in the middle of the bag and straight stitch to bag.
Press the casing around the the bag upwards and stitch a 1/4″ straight stitch to keep the casing upright.
Thread your ribbon through the casing and pull throught so that both ends are even in length. Pin the right end to the left corner of the bag and the left end to the right corner of the bag.
Stitch the ribbon in place and snip off excess. Turn bag inside out and fold bottom corners so the seam of the bag falls on the center bottom of the bag.
Measure 1/2″ from the corner along the stitching line, and draw a 1″ line at a right angle to stitching line and stitch across. Repeat on other corner.
