Iron on your interfacing if needed next

for the strapping, fold in the sides a 1/4″ and then fold again, sew down both sides to create your straps
line up the seam in the centre and sew the little notch shut
Do the same with the lining but line up the sides of your zipper pouch with the sides of the lining (sandwich together) And sew
install your male end of your snap, find the centre and install about 1 1/2″ away from the edge
put the lining in the outer piece with the right sides together and sew all the way around leaving a 4″ opening in the front of the opening
Turn the bag right sides out, poke out your corners!, install the other half of your snap, sew all the way around again to top stitch and close up the hole
