SEWING THE EXTERIOR
- Pin the two exterior pieces with right sides together,
- sew along the edge of the fleece, starting from one side of the hinge mark, around the side and bottom , ends at the other side of the hinge mark, backtacking at both ends. Now you will find that the top edges are open.

SEWING THE INTERIOR
- Pin the two interior pieces with right sides together,
- Centered pattern B on one of the interior piece, transfer the pattern from one hinge marking and working around to the other, then sew the 2 interior pieces together.
- Fold the corners to create gussets (same as with the exterior pieces)
- Turn the interior right side out.
SEWING UP THE EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
- Place the interior inside the exterior and both of their right sides are facing together, line up the edges and pin together
- Sew around the top of the of bag , leaving 3” unstitched.
- Pull the exterior out through the 3” unstitched hole on the top, and the bag is now right side out.
- Topstitch around the top opening 1/8” from the edge.
- Spread a thin line of the glue along the channel from one hinge to another.
- Allow the glue/adhesive to dry for a while
- Starting with one side of the frame by the hinge, push the fabric edge into the channel of the frame, use the flat-head screwdriver to work the way around.
- Repeat same steps for the other side of the frame channel.
- Allow for 15 minutes for the glue to dry thoroughly.
