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.
1. Fold the canvas painter’s cloth (or equivalent fabric yardage) to create a double thickness of fabric approximately 28” wide.
2. Along the straight folded edge, measure 62.5” and with a marker make a mark at the top and bottom points of this measurement.
3. With the marker, draw a straight line 5” long, in from the top mark on the folded edge.
4. With the marker, draw a straight line 25.75” long, in from the bottom mark on the folded edge.
5. Join the ends of the two lines together by drawing a diagonal line between them. You will have half a triangle shape (without a pointed top) on a fold.
6. With your 10” Amplify® Shears, cut out this shape from the double thickness of fabric and repeat steps 1 - 6 three more times so that you have four large ‘triangle’ panels of fabric.
7. Take two cut triangle pieces of fabric and lay one on top of the other with right sides facing together. Pin together along one long side and sew the seam with ½” seam allowance.
8. With the Fiskars® Acrylic Ruler, and marker, draw a line 1.5” in from the seam line, and sew along the line through both pieces of fabric. You have created a tube through which you’ll push a wooden pole to hold the tent up.
9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 for the remaining triangle panels. The final panel will be sewn to the remaining raw edge of the first panel, to complete the canvas covering.
10. To create a doorway, make a cut through the center of one of the panels approximately 34” long. Cover the cut edge with bias tape to prevent fraying.
11. To prevent fraying, sew the entire way around the bottom of the canvas cover with a zigzag stitch.
12. Place the cover on the poles by threading the poles through the interior tubes you sewed. Tie the poles and canvas at the top securely.
13. To finish, decorate the tent. Use felt shapes and a hot glue gun for ease, or stitch if you prefer.
4 ¾” x 6ft wooden poles
9 x 12 ft canvas painter’s cloth (or equivalent fabric yardage)
1 package of bias tape
