Hello and welcome! Today I have ANOTHER placemat project for you. These placemat projects have had an enormous following and I could not be happier about it. They are so quick and easy to put together and the hard part (the quilting) is already done for you!
Today, we are making this upright version. This could be perfect for a make up bag, a lunch bag, an “essentials” travel bag or even just a cute tote or pouch for storage.
The boxy shape and raised zipper make it extra roomy and easy to get in.
I lined this one with Thermoweb Iron On Vinyl which gives the inside a wipeable, waterproof lining. The handle uses Thermoweb Extra Firm Fusible Interfacing to give it extra sturdiness and durability. IMPORTANT NOTE: handle interfacing should be cut to 2″ x 14″, not 4″ x 14″ as stated in video. All of the correct measurements are in the video description.
Ready for the tutorial (you knew I had one ready for you!):
