ESTB-C11 Gusset Sling Bag

    • 1 yard of medium-weight cotton canvas fabric 
    • 1 yard of medium-weight cotton canvas fabric (for pocket)



    - Please bring a woven cotton, non-stretchy medium weight material as it is much easier to sew than stretchy (eg: jersey and lycra knits) and lightweight (eg: chiffon and soft silk) fabric. 

    - Do not buy expensive fabric. Go for fabrics which are $4-$6 per yard. Suggested budget: $20 for all items in the list.
