Felt. Enough for handles that are 2 layers of 33 inches x 1 3/4 inches.  

 

Safety pins for pinning to batting/backing for machine quilting and/or quilter's adhesive spray.

 

Fabric for side and bottom panels, & strips for setting the blocks, See pages 3 & 4 of The Bag Lady (or Gents) Carring Bag Pattern for fabric amounts

 

Muslin for backing - same amount as lining & batting

 

Interfacing gives body to the bag - I recommend the heaviest iron-on interfacing you can find, or two layers of lighter weight interfacing. Pelon Décor Bond(TM) iron-on interfacing is perfect.

 

Batting - I recommend 8 Oz. batting - to give good body to the bag

 

If you wish to use blocks for the ends of the bag, you will  need 12 blocks, If you intend to use a fabric panel for the ends, you will only need 8 blocks, plus the blocks for the pockets - if using blocks for pockets.
