Amy Butler AB013CB Chelsea Bags
Reversable large tote & handbag

Modern, boxy tote and handbag that are reversible for your many moods. Clean lines and cool shapes make for an easy access bag with contemporary urban flair!
Materials List for the Tote
  • 5/8 yard of light to mid weight cotton for the exterior
    *Allow extra for matching up a pattern on your fabric
  • 5/8 yard of light to mid weight cotton for the reversible side
  • 1-yard heavyweight fusible interfacing or Pellon's Craft Fuse
    NOTE: If you use heavyweight cotton you may choose to use a light or featherweight interfacing to give your bag firmness and to reinforce the Handle openings.
  • 1 - 2 3/4" x 9 1/4" heavy pressed cardboard about 1/8" thick for the false bottom
    NOTE: The cardboard from the back of writing pads works great, or you can purchase "chip board" from an art supply store.
  • 1 spool of coordinating thread - I recommend cotton covered polyester thread.

Finished Dimensions for the Swing Bag:12 1/2" wide across the top of the bag x 14 3/4" tall x 3" deep 9 1/2" wide across the bottom of the bag

Materials List for the Handbag

  • 1/2 yard of light to mid weight cotton for the reversible side of the Handbag
  • 1-yard heavyweight fusible interfacing or Pellon's Craft Fuse
    NOTE: If you use heavyweight cotton you may choose to use a light or featherweight interfacing to give your bag firmness and to reinforce the Handle openings.
  • 1 - 2 3/4" x 11 1/4" heavy pressed cardboard about 1/8 thick for the false bottom
    NOTE: The cardboard from the back of writing pads works great, or you can purchase "chip board" from an art supply store.
  • 1 spool of coordinating thread - I recommend cotton covered polyester thread.

Finished Dimensions for the Scarf: 15 wide across the top of the bag x 8" tall x 3" deep 12" wide across the bottom of the bag
