Sew along - Japanese folded patchwork bag - Cutting out (2 of 6)

OK so here is part 2 of the sew along. Today we are moving on to the cutting out.

We are cutting out:
* 24 4x4 squares of fabric A or 24 4x4 squares of assorted fabrics
* 24 6.5 inch circles of fabric B
* 4 4x9 inch rectangles of fabric B for the sides and base of the bag
* 24 4x4 squares of the wadding
* 3 4 x 9 inch rectangles of wadding for the base and sides of the bag
* 36 x 1 inch wide strips of assorted fabrics for sides of bag
* Fabric for strap - I wanted a long narrow cross body strap so I cut a 48inch strip 6 inches wide.
* 2 pieces of plastic canvas 9x4 inches
* Keep the remaining fabric as you will be using it to bind the edges of the bag later.
