    I am writing about the children’s messenger bag on We All Sew. I am confused about the cutting of fabric and fleece for the pocket. If you cut the fabric for the pocket to 13×16 and cut the fleece to 6.5×16 and fold the fabric in half, the pocket is too big for the bag. It is 6.5×16 and goes over the edge of the bag outside fabric. If you turn the fabric the other way, you get a pocket that is 8×13 but then the fleece is too short. Can you explain?

      Fleece is just used for the exterior and flap of the bag. Interfacing is used for the pocket to reduce bulk and should be applied to the lower half of the pocket only (with the interfacing going the full 16″ length). When it is folded in half (wrong sides together) the pocket will measure 6.5 x 16″ (instead of the original 13 x 16) and the pocket will be fully interfaced. You could interface the entire pocket piece (13 x 16) and then fold in half when you get to that point, but that much interfacing really isn’t necessary unless you have very thin material.

      For reference the messenger bag tutorial can be found here.
