Bag that is.......
I've been in a bag making mood. I have other projects (quilts) to finish - they just need binding, but I have been making bags. When Julie saw this bag, she asked how much time I needed to make another one. You see, she is leaving on vacation at the end of the week, and I had already been thinking that I should make her a bag for the trip.
On our last trip to the thrift store, I bought this skirt.
I never intended to wear the skirt (even though it was really pretty) - I just really liked the fabric, and thought I might use it in a quilt. I pulled fabric from my stash that I thought looked nice with it, and cut a few pieces out of the skirt, too.
And here is the finished bag...
Not to sound like a broken record (see last post), but the pattern can be found here. I added an exterior pocket to this side, and left the other side without.
The panels were assembled using a "quilt as you go" method. It is time consuming, but a great way to use up scraps.
I also added 2 interior pockets - one with a zipper, and one without. I had this fat quarter, and I was wondering what I would ever use it in! :)
Julie was pretty excited with the bag.....now it's time to work on binding!
