Pre-Class Preparation

Cut BOSAL foam into 4 pieces measuring  18" x 28"

Cut outside main fabric 2 pieces fabric 18" x 28"

Cut 2 pieces of lining fabric 18" x 28"

From outside main fabric cut 2 each - 1 1/4" x 18" pieces

Inside pocket: your choice of fabrics: cut two 10 1/2" x 25" and two 11" x 25" (Note - the 11" one will be on the inside of the pocket, you will only see .5" of it.  The 10 1/2" will be seen inside the bag)

Cut 4 pieces 2 1/2" x 28" for handles

Cut 2 pieces of Temtex 1 3/4" x 27 1/2" for inside of handles

Cut 2 pieces for bottom of bag 13" x 19"

Cut 4 pieces 1 1/4" x WOF for accent on bottom of bag

Cut 4 pieces 2 1/2" x WOF for zipper binding and bottom of bag binding

Cut 2 pieces 2" x 4" (this is from scraps for zipper tabs)

Cut 2 pieces 2" x 6" (this is from scraps for bows on zipper)

Before class: (In order to finish the bag in class, please have the following completed)

Take 2 pieces of the BOSAL and press focus fabric onto one side of 1 BOSAL and the lining onto the other piece of BOSAL.  You will do this twice so you have 2 focus (outside) fabric pieces and 2 lining pieces.  You will have sandwiched 4 pieces of the form with fabric ironed on to them.

Using clips, layer a focus fabric and lining fabric BOSAL pieces together.  Iron and steam them so you have one piece of foam with a focus fabric and lining fabric on each side.  Do this for the other side.

Once these are steamed together, mark with erasable pen, 13 1/2" from each side to find the center.  Start quilting here and continue using 3/4" or 1" between each of the lines.  I use a walking foot here and a 3.0 stitch length.

Once you have it quilted, we will trim down to 24 1/2" x 17"

Having your sides pre-quilted will help us complete this bag in class.
