Step 1: Gather the Materials
You will need:
• a needle
• 2 different fabrics
• popsicle sticks
• a square/rectangle of cardboard
• yarn/a ribbon
Step 2: Cutting the Pieces for the Bottom
Take the secondary fabric (jeans) and trace the cardboard rectangle, then cut (leaving 1/2 to 1 inch as a border. Use that and trace onto and cut the primary fabric (blue) so you have 2 fabric rectangles about the same size.
Step 3: Sew the Bottom
Sew three sides of the fabric squares together (with the pattern/color facing inward on both. Then turn inside out, slip in the cardboard, and see shut.
Step 4: Creating the Sides
Measure the length of the four sides of the square, and then cut a rectangle of the primary fabric with that length. The height should be the height that you want for your bag (plus 1-2 inches). Then sew the fabric onto the edge of the rectangle, so that all 4 sides are attached.
Step 5: Sew the Sides Together
Then you should sew the ends of the fabric rectangle together. This should look similar to the picture above at this point.
Step 6: Sew the Border
Use the four Popsicle sticks to form a square. Sew the Popsicle sticks onto the edge of the fabric, overlapping the fabric. Then sew under the Popsicle sticks to keep them in place.
Step 7: Add Handles
Use strips of ribbon or fabric to create handles in whatever style suits you
