Bag Base Tutorial for Peltex or Fast2Fuse
I've been meaning to update this bag base tutorial for a while.

Measure the length of the base seam (above) and then the boxed corner seam (below)…

Summer Go-Anywhere Bag | Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog
I was excited when Jen from Ellison Lane Quilts asked me to share a new project to inspire some summer-time sewing.

Plus it only takes a half yard each for the exterior and lining fabrics - bonus! Using webbing for the straps also cuts down on construction time. Some little people are…
