So happy to say, this is my first completed project post, and my second completed sewing project, period.

I saw this bag in the Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection out now.  It's called a grab bag.  One handle is longer than the other, and you pull it through the short handle, and hold it by one handle. 

Being my first post and all- I would love your feedback.  I have seen amazing things on this site, and it's very inspiring.  Having completed this, I think I will do a few things differently next time.  :-)

I've included a few pics, hopefully not too many.

Thanks!

Below- the bag itself.  I love the prints...


Below- same, more of the lining


Below- a shot of the inside & pocket...


Below- one of it sitting...


And lastly, my version of an action shot...

Cute!  Someone else had posted similar ones a while back, with the 2 different length handles.  I liked the design then, and I like it now!  Is it easy to use?  I've thought about making one, but wasn't sure I'd like how I'd have to use it as much as I like the way it looks and the idea of it.  What do you think?

Great work!  Keep posting! Grin

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting!

The bag was easy to make, only took me a few hours in total. I had trouble sewing around the corners and closing up the handles at the top, but I just started sewing.  I think I could pull it off better next time.  :-)

I looked on the BHG site, but didn't see a link to this bag.  I think because it had a pattern attached. 
Is it against the rules to scan the magazine pages and post a link?  ;-)
