Making the Bag
Cut two pieces for the bag and one long piece for the lining. The finished bag is approximately 11" by 8" (like an A4 sheet of paper).
With right sides of fabric facing, stitch the beaded trim to the bottom of the bag pieces with a narrow seam, ensuring you catch the trim inside.
Interface the bag with interfacing, or wadding. We used wadding. If you want to quilt it, now is the time.
Close up of trim.
Stitch side seams with right sides facing.
Turn under top of bag about 1" and stitch.
Add handles by making tabs and looping them through the handles. Stitch to inside of bag.
Stitch lining fabric by folding the long ends together and stitching on each side, ensuring that it is slightly narrower than the bag itself.
Slide lining into the bag and fold under surplus material, then finish by hand.
