To make your purse, the first thing you need to do
is cut out the straps. The straps need to be cut out first, so you can
use the full width of the fabric to make them.
Using a straight edge and a rotary cutter, cut two
straps 3/4" wide (UTZ2801), 1" wide (UTZ2800), or 1 1/4" wide (UTZ2799)
by 40"-55" long.
To determine the length, use a tape measure and hang
it over your shoulder in the same way you'd wear the purse straps would,
and then add 4" to the length that feels comfortable to you.
