Gem Bag



Bethany Miller created this bag using her Dancing Diamonds Interfacing Template.  Your bag can be as outspoken or as demure as you want but it will be fabulous no matter what.    Class fee will include interfacing template and directions.

SUPPLY LIST
Quilt Top:  You will need about one yard total of fabric.  Use scraps strips 1" to 3" wide by at least 22" in length, of two color ways. 
   For the example on the cover, I cut one strip of varying widths, from 31 different fabrics x 22", and it was more than enough for one bag.  If your strips are wider, you will need less, if they are skinnier you will need more of them.  I try to use as many fabrics as possible.  GEM BAG would still work with 10 to 16 different fabrics.  Pre-coordinated fat quarter bundles or 2-1/2" strip rolls work great.

FABRIC FOR SIDE PANEL, STRAPS, BINDING 3/4 yard
