To get started grab your fabric and cut:
Rectangle of fabric 20" x 15"
2 fabric rectangles 2"x 11" (straps)
2 pieces of interfacing 2"x 11"
1 package of boning
Iron interfacing to the wrong side of the strap pieces following manufacturers instructions.
Fold straps in half so they are long and narrow. Sew. Leave one end open for turning.
Fold the big rectangle in half right sides together. Sew.
At the top fold over 1/4" and iron.
Fold another 3/4" and iron.
Pin the straps to the bag 2 inches in on either side. (see picture)
Sew. Make sure to leave a 1" opening to put the boning in through.
Here is what it will look like at this point.
Cut a 15" piece of boning.
Insert the boning through the hole. Adjust it so the boning ends at the strap on both sides.
Use heavy duty velcro or make straps long enough to tie.
The kids pulled them right off so I ended up tie-ing them
