I could not wait to post this one!  I got to use up a lot of my scraps.  The bias tape binding turned out right on the first try.  I cannot believe it!



Here's a pic on my dressform for size reference and stuff.

This is so pretty!

And I can just imagine the amount of time it took you.... I love the blue fabrics you've used, I'm getting lots of ideas just looking at this bag!

Your patchwork bag is totally awesome. What kind of pattern did you use?

That's gorgeous!  I just tried to connect squares like that for a bag...and I realized pretty quickly that accuracy is very important!  And not my strong suit.  Yours is absolutely perfect...it all lines up beautifully.

Great job!
