If you made last week's hobo sack you'll recognize a lot of these steps. We won't be doing any boxy corners with this one, so it should stitch up lickety split. Here's what you'll need:
- Exterior: 2 pieces of fabric, 14 by 15 inches
- Lining: 2 pieces of fabric, 14 by 15 inches
Take your exterior pieces and make those same markings from the top of the bag, AND from the bottom of the bag, so we'll have two gaps on the each side:
Let's do the outside first. Right sides together sew across the bottom. Press that seam open. Then sew each side, being mindful of the gaps. Press those seams open as well.
This next step applies to the gaps near the top only. In order to keep the fabric edges from being too distressed once the drawstring is in there we're going to sew the seam edges down around the gap. I go about 1/4" from the opening all around. When you're finished the outside should look like this:
The inside should look like this:
