Let me know what you think! I made it for a fundraiser, so I hope it does well! 

The front is pieced, and I accidentally cut a huge hole in the gingham, so I appliqud flowers over the top.  It's fully lined, inner pocket, and I made it from my scraps Smiley It's my first pieced anything, really, I make little 4-patch pouches but I don't think that counts!

lovely job, very nostalgic and pretty.
I'd love to make one of these pieced bags soon. (it won't be as nice as yours i think though!)

take care,
Allison

Actually, it takes more of my patience to retouch the photos in photoshop!!  But thank you, thank you!  The pieces use little tricks to do multiple steps at once, so that helps a lot.

that's super! the colors, the vintage patterns, the quilting itself- I love it! As are all the best projects on Craftster, this is inspirational and makes me want to rummage through my scraps to make something just like it.

Very cute! If I were at the fundraiser, I know I'd snap that bag up! Great creativity on covering up the unplanned cut.
