    Toss it in Totes & Zipper Bags NOTES: 1. If you intend to machine wash these totes or zipper bags in the future, pre-wash fabrics and belting before cutting.

    2. Whenever possible, use a straight edge and rotary cutter when cutting out to make the most precise cuts.

    Pages 3a, 3b, and 3c contain templates for the pleats for the three sizes of bags. These pleats will be marked on the batting. 1. Cut out the pleat templates for the size of bag you are making. 2. Fold the batting in half so short edges are together and long side edges align. Lay the pleat templates on the fold of the batting as indicated on the upper right diagram.

    3. Insert a pin through both layers of batting at the circle. Mark where the pin enters the batting on both the top and underside of batting (not in between the batting) for all 3 circles.

    4. Using a �ne line pen or marker, mark these circles on both the top and bottom sides of the batting.

    5. Using a straight edge mark the straight sewing line from point A to point B.

    Sewing Instructions INTERFACING (USE PIECES A,C)

    1a. Apply iron-on interfacing (C) to bag exte- rior (A) following manufacturer’s instructions.

    1b. Mark pleats on batting. (re: page 2)

    MAKING PLEATS (USE PIECES A,B,C)

    2. Lay down bag exterior fabric (A) with wrong side facing up. Lay batting (B) on top of bag exterior fabric so long edges align, batting is centered between short edges and marked pleats are facing up. Pin together only between marked pleats to form fold line.

    2a. Pleats. With exterior bag fabric (A) and batting (B) together (fabric will be right sides together), fold along interior fold line (refer to pleat pattern) matching point A to point A. Pin.

    Repeat for other end.

    3a and 3b. Sew pleats along stitching lines from point A to point B. For best results, make sure both sewing lines are aligned and sewn directly on top of one another.

    Repeat steps 3a and 3b for opposite end.

    HANDLES + BELTING (USE PIECES A, B,C,D,E,F,G)

    4. WITH HANDLES (Skip to step 5 if not including handles on your bag.)

    4a. Place bag right side up with batting under- neath.

    Pin centerline of handle (G) (2 1/2 “ for small) (3 1/2” for medium) (4” for large) in from side seams with raw edges facing top of bag and extending 1/8” above the edge. Pin other end the same being careful not to twist handles.

    4b. Place 1 piece of belting trim (E) over right side of bag exterior so top edges of belting, bag exterior fabric and batting align. Pin.

    Using 1/4” seam, sew across top edge of belting through all layers. Reinforce stitching over handles.

    Repeat for other side - easing the fabric around the batting to align edges. Go to step 6.

    5. WITHOUT HANDLES

    Place bag right side up with batting under- neath. Place 1 piece of belting trim (E) over right side of bag exterior so top eges of belting, bag exterior fabric and batting align. Pin.

    Using 1/4” seam, sew across top edge of belting through all layers.

    5a. Repeat for other side.
