I drew my (future) SIL's name for Christmas this year and I was so excited. She loves Buddha's and I had already purchased her this fabric just in case I got her. I have been looking for something like this for a while.
She likes bigger bags so I used Emmaline Bag pattern. It's approx. 15" wide, 9" tall, and about a 4" bottom so it can hold a lot. This was my first time doing an intermediate pattern. It is far from perfect but I think it turned out nice. The bottom has a plactic base that you made a pillow type opening for and then put the interior over. I was unsure at first because I have never done anything like that but it worked!
It also has two interior pockets. One with a zipper.
and one without done in the exterior fabric for a little pop.
Thanks for looking. I plan to use this as her wrapping and add all her goodies inside. I am so excited to give it to her. I hope she likes it!
Oh, and I plan to make another one for my sister's birthday in Apri, in a different fabric of coursel. I think that one will turn out a little better since I am more familiar with the pattern.
