Sophistication, Class and Style, The Julie will provide you with everything you need!


The Julie is a mid-sized bag with two exterior slip pockets, two interior slip pockets, and an interior zipper pocket.  Cotton, cotton canvas, faux or genuine leather can be used to construct this bag. The bag can be made in all one fabric, or you can use a contrast fabric for the handle connectors and handles.Waterproof canvas, cotton, linen, or other similar materials of your choice can be used for the interior lining. Stabilizer is needed to give the bag firmness. Decovil Light or other similar weight stabilizer should be used to stabilize the exterior of the bag on the pieces indicated but should remain outside of your seam allowances. Decovil Heavy, Peltex or other similar weight stabilizer can be used to stabilize the base of the bag. If using cotton or linen for the lining, the pieces will need to be backed with woven interfacing like SF101, Wovenfuse or other similar weight interfacing.
