These are steps on how to make a simple bag to store receipts, writing instruments, or any other objects. You will need the following: 1. Thread 2. Scissors 3. Sewing Machine 4. Decorative Fabric 5. Lining Fabric 6. Small Button 7. Ribbon/Trim 8. Needle

Step 1: Fabric Pieces

Cut out your fabric in rectangular pieces. Both your decorative and lining pieces will measure 6 inches by 12 inches. You should have two pieces of the decorative fabric and two of the lining fabric. You will also cut out one piece of both fabrics measuring 4 inches by 4 inches. These two pieces will be the flap.
