Fabric Needs

  • Exterior Fabric: 1/2 yd.
  • Lining: 1/2 yd. (for Purse & exterior Pocket only)
  • (you'll need ANOTHER 1/4-1/3 yd. for the optional Core Insert)
  • Fusible Interfacing: 1/3 yd.(or less, without optional Core Insert)
  • Fusible Fleece: 1/3 yd.
  • Double-Sided Fusible Stabilizer: one 13" X 13" piece (We recommend Peltex or the equivalent)

Other Supplies Needed

  • 1 each- 18" nylon Purse zipper, *see Zipper Note below
  • 1 each- 3/4" magnetic snap
  • 1.5 inches- Velcro (only for optional exterior Pocket)
  • 18 inches- Single Fold bias tape (only if you choose ID Window for optional Core Insert)
  • 1 each- 7" nylon zipper (only if you choose a zippered top for the optional Core Insert)
  • *Zipper note; I recommend using a Coats & Clark PURSE zipper for your Trifecta. It is closed at both ends, with TWO zipperheads. When your Core is zipped closed, both zipperheads can meet at the top of your bag, greatly simplifying usage.
