MATERIALS NEEDED to make Kensington Handbag:
*FABRIC A (main exterior) – 3/4 yard
*FABRIC B (lining) – 1/2 yard
*FABRIC C (pocket linings) – 1/2 yard
SF 101 INTERFACING (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice) – 2 yards
two (2) – 3/4'' wide x 26'' long LEATHER STRIPS for handles

one (1) - 6'' long metal or nylon ZIPPER
one (1) - 14'' long metal or nylon ZIPPER
four (4) – 6-8 mm RIVETS (optional)
EXTERIOR (FABRIC A) – designer cotton canvas, Essex linen, cotton/linen blend fabric, denim, or medium weight home décor fabric are recommended. Waxed canvas could also be used (no need to add interfacing if you do).
LINING (FABRIC B, C) - I used quilting cotton for the main lining, but you can also use duck canvas (no need to add interfacing if you use canvas for the lining). Pocket linings work best when quilting cotton is used.
cutting mat, ruler, and rotary cutter
Wonder clips and/or pins
disappearing fabric marker or fine chalk pen
small sharp fabric scissors
90/14 or 110/18 (jeans/denim) needle for your sewing machine
