6 beads with large holes
Note: All seams are ¼" (6mm).
Cut: Cut 2 A and 2 B of satin; 1 A and 1 B of fleece.
Front and Back: Baste fleece sections to wrong side of 1 A and 1 B fabric sections. Use remaining pieces as lining. With right sides together, stitch across the straight edge of front sections. Trim fleece to stitch line. Cut a 3" (7.5cm) piece of braid for loop. Baste ends at small dots on right side of fleece-backed back matching raw edges.

Press in seam allowance and edgestitch opening closed. Press. Tuck lining inside bag.
