The bag follows the construction of the Becca Bag by Lazy Girl Design, here we will only give you a few tips on sewing the ribbons and the velvet border. Refer to the Becca Bag pattern for the unique way to insert the ½ zipper and the final assembly of the bag.

Initial steps ( revised 2/28/2017)

  1. Start by cutting 24” long pieces of both ribbons, the velvet border and the foam or interfacing of your choice. (24” long -7 ¼” tall). The lining enclosed is cut to size.
  2. Cut and prep zipper as per the Becca Bags pattern.
  3. Position the lining fabric right side (RS) up underneath the zipper which is also RS up (raw edge of fabric matching fabric edge of zipper). Optional - sew the two together 1/8” from the edge to secure with a seam - see photo 1.
  4. Mark a line on your foam piece at ¼” from long edge. Align the edge of the zipper and lining fabric (sandwiching the lining fabric), with the marked line, hold or pin, see photo 2.
  5. Position the 1 ½” wide Chipmunk ribbon on the zipper tape and stitch close to the edge of the Chipmunk ribbon, through all layers including the zipper, lining fabric and foam/interfacing. We suggest an invisible filament thread or a color matching the ribbon.

Please note, this is a first kit we are putting together, we appreciate your purchase and welcome any comments on suggestions on how to improve! Please follow s as we have many more special kits to offer!

  6. Position the 3/8” wide Wanderer ribbon along bottom edge of the Chipmunk ribbon, abut the ribbons, stitch a zig zag stitch to join the ribbons and the foam (or interfacing), see photo 4.
  7. Place the Wanderer ribbon so it overlaps the white border of the French Velvet Border Peonies. Straight or zigzag stitch to join the ribbons, see photo 5.
  8. Add a few lines of stitching (almost like quilting) to secure the bag and foam if necessary.
  9. Then follow instructions on your Becca Bag Pattern.
