i was browsing craftster Saturday and was inspired by the mini bowling bag made by qazicat http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64535.0
and by the amy butler sophia carry-all http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=35

so i got my fabric on Saturday and spent my entire day sunday drafting a pattern and making the bag.

I'm actually surprised that after staring at it for 12 hours, i actually still like it!

it is 11 inches at its widest point, 7 inches tall and 4 inches deep.



open and empty



my first attempt at a slash style pocket



filled up



this was also my first time using and making my own piping...  i love the way it looks and i learnd a lot, but im not sure how much more i will use it.


thanks for looking!

cute!!! I love the fabrics together. I tried to make that mini bowling bag once and it turned into a disaster... I think I made it a bit too sturdy and my piping was an absolute mess... might need to give it another try though...
