First I cut 2-20" squares of medium weight cotton twill fabric. I use the heavier cotton because it stands up to more use than the quilting weight cotton. Sometimes I just cut a piece of fabric 20X40 so that I can eliminaste one of the seams.
Second I cut 2 straps of twill strapping. I get mine from www.countrybrookdesign.com they have a variety of colors and designs.
Then the sewing starts. I start by folding over 1/4th inch of the bag top and stitching that down.
Happy stitching! Next I will post photos of my bowtie blocks.
