Whether it is your go-to bag for shopping or a gift for someone, this simple and chic crossbody purse is a great bag for everyday of the year.
I love that I can personalize both the style and the size to work anywhere in my house. I’ve made this one on the small side – it will be perfect for holding small scraps of fabric in my sewing space – but I’d love to try a bigger one to hold toys as well.
1. Using your Comfort Grip Rotary Trimmer, Cutting Mat and Acrylic Ruler, cut 10 pieces of fabric to 7 inches x 7 inches. (You can tweak these measurements to fit the size you’d like to make – just remember that your fabric should be 1 inch wider around on all sides than your interfacing). You can use one fabric for all of your squares, or do different prints on the inside and outside of the cubes – or you could mix it up and do each side a different pattern.
2. If you’d like, you can substitute a quilted block for one (or more!) of your panels – just make sure that the finished design is the same size as your other sides. I backed my pieced panel with flannel and quilted it.
3. Next, cut stiff interfacing to 6 inches by 6 inches.
4. Choose the four squares you’d like to use for the inside walls of the cube. Stitch each square together, right sides in, with a 0.5inch seam allowance. Once you’ve stitched all four together, stitch the two end blocks together. Press the seams open.
5. Repeat with your outer squares.
6. Affix the stiff interfacing between the 2 remaining squares according to the package directions.
7. Pin the inner sides to the bottom and stitch together, using a 0.5 inch seam allowance. Press the seams open.
8. Slide your tube of outer squares inside of the inner squares, right sides together. Your fabric print should be facing up. Pin in place and then sew together with a 0.5 inch seam allowance. Press the seams open.
9. Flip your fabric around so that the right side is facing the outside. Press the top seams down to being to form the cube.
10. Insert a piece of interfacing into each side of the cube and iron in place.
11. You should have 0.5 inch seams on the bottom of your outer fabric and on the sides of the base of the cube. Press these seams inward and then handstitch them closed using a hidden stitch.
