The Baker Street Bag only features one pattern piece. The rest are rectangular cuts, so there is only one page of templates to print and therefore no taping together!
When making this bag, you’ll assemble the top closure with a recessed zipper. Although you can if you prefer swap out the zipper for a magnetic snap closure. There are also some quick and easy topstitched pockets in the lining of the bag.
The finished size of the bag is 12” long by 8” tall by 4” deep and can be made by beginner sewers.
Minimal supplies are needed:
- 3/4 yard of exterior fabric
- 3/4 yard of lining fabric
- 1/2 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable (Soft and Stable is a 1/8” thick, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable; you can also substitute a needled fleece fusible interfacing for the Soft and Stable, such as Pellon #TP971F Thermolam Plus fusible interfacing)
- 2-1/2 yards of Pellon SF-101 Shape Flex fusible woven interfacing (or medium-weight fusible interfacing)
- 12” zipper
