Cutting: Part 2

Once you have all of your supplies, you will begin to cut the Weekender Tote pieces from your fabrics. This is a critical step of the project, so please measure carefully. It takes time and effort to cut everything correctly. You will need to use the guide on page 3 of your Weekender Tote pattern. Everything is rectangular shapes except for the lining and pocket shapes. Set the pleat template aside, You will not need it until step 5, on page 5. 
Here is a look at our Flickr Group's work on this step...
This is a great picture from CookCleanCraft. I like to lay out my pieces this way too. It is nice knowing I am not the only one.

Thank you for sharing your pictures everyone!
Great work!   Don't forget to treat yourself for completing each part of the sew along. It could be a nature walk, a relaxing bath, reading your favorite book or even more sewing time. Please feel free to share with the group some ways you have treated yourself!
Happy Cutting!

It's great seeing how everyone's bags are coming together. There are some great fabric combinations. Maybe I'll be more adventurous with the next one (since I know this bag is going to be a success!).

Are we cutting and fusing the interfacing this week, too?

I know this question is technically for the step we are doing this week, but do you have any photos of you laying the pleat pattern onto the patchwork pleat for cutting? I'm a bit confused! (I blame being 26 weeks pregnant - ha!) Thank you!!
