Links for fabrics

  • If you are using a cotton canvas, we recommend Pellon TP971F.
  • If you are using waxed canvas, you do not need to interface the fabric.

For the hardware, don't hesitate to upcycle an old bag or item from a thrift store. If you cannot find any, you can check out Emmaline Bags, where we purchased our metal hardware for our bags. Plastic hooks, rings, and sliders can be found quite easily in fabric stores and on Amazon/Etsy.

To make your project quicker, look for 1'' webbing by the yard for the straps, handles and connectors.
