Suggested Fabrics

Medium- to lightweight fabrics such as upholstery fabric, cotton home decorating fabric, quilting cottons, linen, or wool.

  • 1/2 yard cotton canvas (standard 60" wide)
  • 1 1/2 yards heavy sew-in interfacing (or 1/2 yard if using heavy-weight fabric for the exterior)

  • One 7" zipper
  • One 1" - 1 1/2" button
  • Small scrap of lightweight fusible interfacing (approximately 2" x 9")
