We recommend the Simply Classic Italian leather kits to construct this bag. However, 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 slip handle.


Waterproof canvas, cotton, linen, or other similar materials of your choice can be used for the interior lining. 


Since the bag is quilted, foam is needed to give the bag the proper puffy effect. The amount of puff your bag has is personal preference.  Add batting or fleece for a puffier look. The foam and/or fleece should remain outside of your seam allowances. 


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.
