The Bag!

By Blemon
The bag!I finished the bag and I've been trying it out. I just now realized that I didn't take any "action" shots so I'll do that soon. It's the perfect size and I'm quite happy with it. Two bold box pleats on each side and no box pleats on the inside. I made a pattern for that shape so there wouldn't be all that fabric to dirty up.
The bag!Inside is Amy Butler and a print I can't remember the name of (anyone?). The straps are solid yellow home dec. fabric from Ikea on the outside and a secret bit of the matching Heather Ross moons. I just love the sleeping beauty fabric more than anything.
There are definitely a few things I'd change if I make this bag again. I didn't add interfacing to the top panel and that was a big mistake. The pocket on the inside is a bit small. But I enjoyed making something for myself for once -- and actually using it.
