This is what I came up with while stitching down my binding yesterday! I love that I have grown as a seamstress, to the point where I can envision a bag, and have the experience to accomplish it! I had a few scraps the same size and that started the thought process, I always want to use up those extra bits somehow :)
There's not really a front or back . . .
I added pockets to my lining, to fit a phone, pens and miscellaneous bits that always land at the bottom. I added stuff for the picture, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep it . . . have to think it out - it may end up in my etsy shop.
I did a bit of random quilting within the panels.
My only change in the future might be to add some interfacing. I wanted to try a bag with batting only to see how it did - I like it, nice and soft, but having more strength would probably be helpful in the long term scheme of things :)
What do you think of it?
I'm off to tackle a few necessities.
Blessings to you ~
