Download and cut out pattern and fabrics, keeping the off cuts.
Create patch pockets or appliqué and apply this now!
Place the 2 x lining fabrics together and the 2 x outer fabrics together with right sides together.
Sew around the 3 x box (straight lines) leaving the small corners open on both pieces, so you have separate bags.
Create the base of the bag by opening up the bottom squares like a crisp packet, and line the seams up in a triangular type of shape.
Sew along this line three times. Leave the one open – this will be the lining
Turn one of the bags through to the right way (either one, it doesn’t matter) and place inside the other one so you now have the 2 x bags with right sides together.
Line up all the curves at the top of the bags and pin together. Line up the side seams.
Sew around the curves, sewing the bag together. Ensure you leave the very top straight lines open.
Notch the curves and turn the whole bag through using the corner that was left open in step 5.
Slide the bag inside each other and press flat and turn the tops inside each other.
Turn the tops inside each other.
Pop button and button holes on the straps!
