I hope you'll enjoy making the basic squares version of the So Sew Easy Bag with me. If you haven't printed a copy of the fabric requirements and instructions you can get them HERE.
You need to choose at least 4 fabrics for the outside of your bag. One of them will be the top triangle row and the handles. I have no problem picking out at least 7 or 8 fabrics but narrowing them down to the final 4 is what causes me the most trouble. I try to think about what I'm going to use my bag for and that often helps. In this case, I'm going to schlep things back and forth to the cottage this summer so I've chosen fabrics with a dark background.
We need to decide on placement so before you cut your squares and triangles choose your favorite fabric. That's the one I'd label as "A". I like to use a darker fabric for "C" because it will be the bottom of the bag. Select a fabric for position "B" and one as fabric "T/H" (triangles/handles). Note: The handles don't have to match your triangles. They can be made from any of your choices.
