My bag is finished!
Finally, after putting it off day after day, I spent this gloomy rainy day in my quilt room and got my bag finished. And I don't mean done, I mean done DONE as in everything is finished and it's ready to be used!
I haven't made a bag for years and wondered if I'd remember how but it was actually easier than I thought it would be. I chose to quilt it, because, well, I'm a quilter and that's just what I do!
I bought some D-Rings and used them for attaching the handles. I think it makes it a little different than normal, and adds a bit of interest.
The lining fabric was one of those things that was meant to be - remember when I won a box of goodies from Tami at Lemon Tree Tales back in January? Well this piece was in that wonderful box, and there was exactly enough for the lining, including pockets! So THANK YOU Tami!!
I'm so pleased with it, and am in love with the appliqued letter! My 3 year old who's name also starts with 'J' thinks the bag is his. I was lucky to keep his hands off it long enough to take some photos!
I will definitely be making more of these. One can not have too many shoes or bags, right?!
Tomorrow, framed cupcake quilt photos!
