Project Information

by Carol R. Zentgraf Design & Editorial Services


  • 58"/60"-wide James Thompson Duck Canvas, 1/4 yard each of red and black
  • 3 1/3 yards of Dritz nylon strapping
  • Matching sewing thread
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Ruler
  • Iron and pressing surface
  • Sewing machine


  1. From each color of duck canvas, cut two 8" x 29" rectangles. Cut one red rectangle in half lengthwise to make two 4" x 29" strips for the top edge binding.
  2. Using a 1/2" seam allowance, sew the long edges of the red rectangle to the black rectangles. Press the seam allowances open. Finish each seam allowance with serging or zigzag stitches.
  3. Press each long side edge under 1/2", then 1/2" again. Topstitch each hem in place 1/4" from the edge.
  4. To make the binding for the top edges of the carrier, trim each red strip to 4" x 21". Press the short edges under 1/2". Press each strip in half lengthwise, then fold and press the long edges to meet at the center fold. Wrap the strips over the top edges of the carrier and stitch in place 1/4" from the side and lower edges.
  5. To make the handles, overlap the short ends of the nylon strapping and securely stitch together using a zigzag stitch. Place the carrier right side up on a flat surface. Center the strapping over the seams, creating equally-sized handles on each end. Pin the strapping in place. Sew both long edges of the strapping to the canvas.
