Today's Friday Fun Day is Part 1
We are going to stitch up a simple shoulder bag 
and learn how to make an easy I cord
 for a handle. 

Part 2 will be next Friday, and we will learn how to
 line the bag in a super simple way. 

You will love this Little Chunky Bag, I know I do.

The Bag is a fun Shoulder Bag that measure about
 8 X 8 inches, not including the handle. It's the perfect
 size for your phone, wallet and few other things.
Just what you need when a large purse or bag 
is not needed.

Bag handle, I Cord
Using 2 strands of yarn held together,
I like to use 2 different colors.

I untie that know when I am finished.
With 1 strand, make a slip knot, ch3,
Slip hook through each ch and pull up a loop.
(3 loops on the hook)
**Slide off the 2nd and 3rd loop carefully,
With the 2nd strand, slst in the 1st loop,
Insert hook in the 2nd loop and pull through a loop
 from the 2nd strand, and repeat on the 3rd loop**

Continue to repeat from * To * Alternating the 2 strands of yarn,
Stop when the cord/ handle is as long as you want it.

Slst in the 1st loop, pull the 1st loop through the 2nd loop,
Pull the 2nd loop through the 3rd loop, tie off and weave in your ends.
With Needle and matching yarn, sew a ring on each side of the bag.
Sew the ends of the I cord to each ring securely.

If you don't prefer to use the rings, sew the I cord directly onto the bag.

How To Line A Bag

 You will Need:

2 Pieces of Cloth - 12 X 12 inches
I like to use bandannas premade because they are inexpensive.
Straight Pins - About 15
Sewing Needle
Sewing Thread - To match the cloth
Sewing Scissors
Tape Measure

1. Lay out your fabric, lay your bag on top of the fabric.
Measure an 3 inches across the top of the bag, 
and mark with a pen.
And 2  inch around the sides, and the bottom of the back.
Cut the fabric.

2. Move The bag, lay the Fabric Wrong side out and pin.
Measure up 1 inch and Cut off the corner off the2 bottom corners.
Thread The needle with the thread and Measure in about 1 inch.
Starting at the left top, sew down side and bottom
and up the other side of the bag.
 Fold the 2 bottom corners and sew them.

3. Fold the top of the liner twice and pin in place.
 Slip into liner the bag.
With thread and needle whip stitch the liner to the bag securely.

And That's it.

You can use this method on just about any size bag.
