This bag is jelly roll friendly. You will need about 15 2 ½ inch strips to complete the outside of the bag and handle. If you don’t have a jelly roll then yardage to get those 15 strips is just fine. You can have as many or as few colors as you choose. You also need 1 ¼ yd cotton fabric for the lining and 1 ¼ yard fusible fleece. Fusible fleece is a Pellon product that has iron on glue on one side and is about the thickness of thin cotton batting. This can be purchased at any fabric store or even Walmart.
If you would like to cut ahead you need a total of 208 2 ½ inch squares. How many of each color would depend on how many fabrics you are choosing.
