Take a piece of linen or soft colored cotton material such as chambray 9x6 inches. At one end of it cut from each corner a triangle which will be 1 1/2 inches on its straight sides. Make a crease across the material 1/2 inch below the triangles. This will form the lap which will fold over the bag. (Fig. 40.) Make a narrow hem on the raw edges all the way around the piece and some variety of feather stitching just inside of the hemming, about 3/8 of an inch from the edge. (Fig. 38.) Turn the piece wrong side out and fold it together so that the straight end meets the crease across the material below the triangular cuts. Overhand the sides together to make the bag. Turn the right side out and let the lap fall over the pocket.
