*Iron both pieces of your fabric. (don’t iron the fusible interfacing….that would be bad!)
From your Main outside fabric cut:
3 – 16″ x 24″ for purse body (mark 2 of them “A”, and one “B”)
1- 4″ x 44″ Straps
1- 8″ x 16″ Pocket
1- 4″ x 12″ D-ring straps
From your Accent/lining fabric cut:

Step 1-Fuse interfacing to matching pieces.
*If you want a stiffer bag you can Interface Purse Body B, and Lining B pieces.
*If you want to use it for a Computer Bag, I suggest using fusible fleece for Interfacing on Purse Body B, and Lining B
Step 2-Get 4″ x 44″(or width of fabric) strap piece and cut it into fourths.
(they will each measure approx. 4″ x 11″)
Step 3-Take your 2 Purse Body A pieces.
Lay them with right sides together.
Mark as shown in photo.
The next thing you will need to do is round out the corner.
Just freehand it, or you can use a bowl as a guide.
Cut that curve away.
Everything is now cut, faced, and ready to go for Monday.
Take Sunday off, or use it to catch up!
