I used McCall's Pattern M5487 for this bag that I made my mother in law for Christmas. It took me ages to sew....but then I'm a slow sewer. I used home dec canvas duck inside and out and fleece interfacing but I wish I'd used a stiffer interfacing because it collapses if it's not full. It's huge though! I could comfortably fit about 5 jackets inside. It was a fairly painfree experience too, tho the handles gave me some trouble. This is my first project post here tho I've lurked for a loooong time! I'd appreciate any comments or constructive criticism.

I love the fabric and the bag!  It looks great!  I have a McCalls bag pattern (different than that one) and wasn't sure if they were easy to use or not.  I usually use Simplicity since I always find them on 99cent sales.  Cheesy
