Once you have your bag pieces cut out, press your seam allowances (a half inch on all sides) to the wrong side of the fabric, pinning where necessary to hold in place.

Using your sewing machine and matching thread, sew the seams down. You can do this by hand, but it's a lot faster and easier to use a machine if you have one.
