Debbie Shore's Threaders Project 4: Japanese Knot Bag

This stunning bag is actually very simple to make, and can be made as large or as small as you like! Try making it up in different fabrics, denim, faux leather or even silk, which would look lovely when embroidered as an evening bag! Use a 1.4” seam allowance. Materials needed:  • 2 pieces of patterned fabric measuring 19” x 25”  • 2 pieces of lining fabric measuring 19” x 25”  • 2 pieces of fusible fleece measuring the same 1: Cut a curve around the bottom edge of each piece of fabric and fleece. 2. Turn one of the patterned pieces to the wrong side and draw a line each side, from the top, 4” from the side and 12” from the top. Using a 12” circle template, join the lines to make a curve. 3. With the patterned fabrics right sides together, cut around the curved line. You’ll see two handles forming. Measure 8” from the top of one of the handles and cut across. 4. Measure 10” from the bottom of each section on the bag and make a mark on either side.
