DURING THE BIG......

.... clean up I found MANY things. Among them was a pack containing a pattern and fabric to make a bag... the receipt was in side and it says I bought it in January 2013... so not so very long ago!! lol x 

I started off following the directions (sort of!!).. and made the outside of the bag....




.. then I (sort of)..... went my own way .. if you can believe that!.. now I have a bag..



..there are 2 pockets .. not sure if they show very well..


.. I'm not 100% happy with the handles .. but I have an idea of how to improve them xx

BECAUSE I received this ...


.... to-day I feel OK saying that this is the START of my Christmas making x   lol   xx

I like your bag. . . loads! Isn't it amazing how little time it sometimes takes to use something up in your studio that had a purpose; but, was just lying about??? Well done!!!

It is such a cute bag. I am saving a worn-out bag hoping to turn it into a pattern because the pocket size and placements are just perfect. I am also using one I made that will need help around the top as it is beginning to show wear. It is hard to tell when you start out how your fabric choices will hold up. Maybe that is true with quilts too.
