I'm Finished!

This was a quick and easy bag to make. I did not make any pockets.

Here is everything all cut and ready.

Had to use some pins.
Don't forget to change the needle. Lots of layers here. I made two and a half inch bias binding to cover the raw edges. The pattern does call for a lining fabric. I chose not to follow directions since my fabric was pretty on both sides.




I also did not follow the handle directions. I made four inch wide bias binding.

Here is the wrong side. I kinda like it. I guess this could be a reversible bag.

This is the right side. I am liking it.

I'm gonna surf the other Party People's blogs!

Thank you for stopping by. I love the bag you made. Purses are so much fun because they don't take as long as a quilt and we get that instant gratification. Be blessed!

I really love your bag, the shape is something a bit different, and I love how the binding become the handles! I will have to have a look around and see if I can buy the book somewhere!
