Weekend Project

I came across a free pattern for a gorgeous bag, here. Of course I just had to try it out this weekend:

Its made using Charm Packs.....I use a couple of Moda's Nells Flower Shop and it uses about a metre of lining material It was quick and easy to put together.....a great weekend project!!

I did deviate from the directions a little....I wanted to add pockets and I also quilted it a little differentley:


Its a wonderful, generous size (18") bag which will be sufficent for me to pack all my needs for my Saturday classes (plus I always seem to come home with more!!!) Give it a try, Im sure you will love it too!!!!
