My Bag is Done!!!!
This is what inspired me. I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw it. I had NEVER heard of Threads so I had no idea that it was for people that had more sewing time behind them then me. But I did have the help of my friend Maria! She got me started and made me feel that I could do it. Thank you again Maria.
This is how my bag turned out. I learned lots of cool stuff doing this bag that I will be using on other projects that are stacking up right now. (the next one being the Mothers Day gift for my Mother-in-Law... Sorry Nancy I will get to it now and it will be better because I am going to use some of the things I learned with this bag.) I think that it came out really nice. I might redo the straps and put some interfacing in them... I will just see how I like it and if I think it needs it later.
This is one of the cool things I learned to do. I like to say that the pocket is bigger on the inside then it is on the outside ... hee hee hee ( now some of you know that I am a huge Dr Who fan;)
The pattern did not have pockets on the inside, but I could not see living without them so I made 2. One of them big enough for an epi-pen (thank you Stephanie for giving me this idea).
This is another thing that is cool about it. I love the way they did the bottom.
For those of you that sew a lot these may not be big things but for a quilter like me (straight lines... how I love straight lines) these things are WAY COOL.
