Hi everyone!

I feel like I know all of you... I've been a member here for over two years but (gasp!) I've never posted. You've all brought me much joy by looking at your bags and I figure it is way past time I shared one of mine.

I just finished this one this morning. The original bag was just a sample I made to work out a new design. I used a small piece out of some scrap fabric I had on hand just to see what the bag would look like.

The basic pattern is very jordy-like, however, my patterns are kind of like distorted fat T's. This bag is heavily reinforced with heavy-duty interfacing and is lined with red cotton duck. There is also a square of plastic canvas in the bottom to further reinforce it.

Here is the bag:



And here is the fabric it came from:

Thanks! It's great when happy accidents happen.  Grin I had enough fabric for 3 of them... this one was the last of the fabric (at least the bird part of the fabric).

Thank you! There is just something about those birds that everyone loves. I got the fabric from an upholstery/drapery shop that was moving. It sat in my stash until that Sunday morning. I just grabbed a hunk of fabric and there it was!
