The Schlep Bag



The Schlep Bag is a little like a potato chip – you can’t have (or make) just one! In this class, you will choose the size of bag you make. The instructions you take home afterwards will help you easily make more in any number of sizes.

Choose fabrics to be coordinated or go totally scrappy. You can go with a single fabric for the inside, or plan your fabrics for a totally reversable bag.

Please read the supply list and cut your fabrics before coming to class. Adding an interfacing to the straps is totally optional, but should be done before class if desired.

 

Supply List for Schlep Bag

32 squares of quality quilting cotton prints or batiks (see size guide, below). Have squares and handle strips cut before arriving for class.

·         Outside of bag: 16 squares. If using 2 fabrics, cut 8 squares of each. If using 4 fabrics, cut 4 squares of each.

·         Inside of bag: 16 squares. For a plain lining, use just one fabric. For a reversible bag, use 2 or more fabrics. If using 2 fabrics, cut 8 squares of each. If using 4 fabrics, cut 4 squares of each.

·         Straps: 2 strips to coordinate with outside fabrics, 2 strips to coordinate with the inside fabrics. Cut strips 2 inches wide and 1 inch longer than you would like your straps to be when finished. Interfacing the straps with SF101 or another light interfacing is optional.

For a small bag (i.e. lunch bag) cut the squares 5 inches.

For a medium size bag, cut the squares 7inches or 8 inches.

For a large bag (i.e. big enough to hold a queen size quilt), cut the squares 10 inches.

Sewing machine                Thread for piecing and topstitching

Scissors                             Pins, fabric clips

Rotary Cutter                     Cutting mat
