Hi again! Two days ago I made a post about my expandable quilted patchwork bag.  Thank you to those who have responded so far.  What I'm showing you today is another bag having exactly the same fabrics as the first one.  You've most likely seen bags like this before ... it seems to be all over craft blogs.  I don't have the Japanese book (Machine Made Patchworks) containing the pattern so I had to figure the procedure out by myself with some help from this blog:

http://creativelittledaisy.typepad.com/creative_little_daisy/2006/06/two_little_tuts.html

Here it is.  Hope you like it!  Roll Eyes



And another view:



Just for info, the bag is about 17 1/2" at its widest point (bottom) and 10" deep from the center.  Handles are 28" long.  It is lined with denim, has an inside pocket and closes with a magnetic snap.

Again, thanks for looking!

I love the fabrics you chose and it looks perfect. I made one too in purples, the person I gave it to is harrassing me for one in red and blacks lol.
