Great job. The bag looks amazing  I love the front pocket and of course  fabrics. What kind of interfacing did you use? Is the fabric home decor weight?
I like when the bag can stand on its own. Cheesy

thanks everyone for the kind words. i'm sure my mom will love it. it has everything she requested including pockets on the sides too. you can't really see them in the pics and i managed line up the fabric there too. matching the image was a bit of a chore but in the end i think it was worth the time and effort. there is a piece of cardboard inserted on the bottom to help it stand. and the interior and exterior fabric is regular cotton weight. i did use a heavier fusible interfacing. it was almost like batting or it could actually be batting. i'll have to double check. hopefully my brother can get a pic of her sporting it.

I love how you matched the fabric of the pocket with the main bag - it looks seamless! Also the piping looks great, I'll have to try it one day - I think it always looks great but I'm so scared to try because everyone seems to say how hard it is!

wow, that was a awesome deal! that has always been one of my favorite butler prints. its kinda of obnoxious, but then again so am i. it looks great as that bag and your piping looks nice and neat. i keep seeing all of these great bags with "first time" piping and i am so jealous!....that pocket is pretty darn incredible too. you matched it up perfectly. i almost didnt even notice it until i saw it open. your mom is lucky to have a talented daughter like you to make goodies like that.


Long live Craftster and the crafty-craftiness of its crafters!!!
