You have probably seen many version of this bag
It seems to be popping up all over.
At the beginning of June I chose this bag as my goal
and have come up with this version..
I finally decided to make my first one using only things I had on hand.
Two winters ago I was wandering in Walmart and spotted
Fat Quarter bundles on sale for $7.
These fabrics were bright and cheerful on that winter day,
and the fabric was a good quality,
so I bought both bundles and saved them for "Someday".
I added a few other fabrics and began using them in a
Row Along last summer.
But I wasn't loving it.
Rather than invest anymore time in blocks I didn't love,
I set them aside.
Some of those are now Sewn Together in a bag!
None of my zippers are the same size..
but I wanted these colors and
had to use my things from home.
Because the top zipper was shorter than the pattern suggested,
I added 4" to each handles.
Inside was full of happy colors!
I like how everything can be zipped in for travel.
I can't wait to use this bag to take advantage of its organizational pockets!
The handles may be a bit too large,
but they will be easy to snag on the go.
When I make my next one I will hand sew the bindings.
I am never happy when I sew them by machine.
Other than that, I am pleased with the outcome.
It was a well-written pattern
and a great idea.....
