Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011- July’s Bag

I'm recovered from no sleep after the holiday and finally ready to do some computing.

We will be making the KEY KEEPER COIN PURSE from Chapter 7.  

Fabrics for KEY KEEPER COIN PURSE—

Yardage requirements are very small for this bag, I would just say scraps or fat quarters, even for the interfacing.

 

 Here are my fabrics (scraps from my Teardrop bag:

ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES:

We will need 1 1/2 yards of 20" wide FUSIBLE woven interfacing.  The testers in the book used Shape Flex by Pellon SF-101, just make sure that it is fusible and intended for light to mid-weight fabrics.  I am in love with SF 101, that stuff is an interfacer's dream!

1 7" zipper.

You can purchase interfacing at your local shop that sells fabric.  

Are you new to using interfacing?  Kathy Mack at Pink Chalk has a helpful guide to fusible interfacing that you may enjoy.
