I " found" some fabric in my stash. It must be fairly well-aged, because it's another I have forgotten what I bought it for. Huh

It's a nice print: cranes & clouds on a black background. I bought a white Vine print for th' band. I also found some black broadcloth for th' slide panels and handles.

I made Kwik Sew #3749 out of it.


I figured it would be stunning, but it surpassed even my expectations.
l

And the interior:


It took me longer th'n I expected. Mainly because I made an error. I forgot that there's a side panel inside as well.  Undecided  So, after sewing the interior together incorrectly, I had to rip it apart and add the side panel (which I'd even forgotten to cut out   Tongue)

But, it did (finally) turn out more stunning th'n I expected.

What do you think Craftsters & guests? Am I over-estimating it, or is it okay?

I love the way the fabric makes the pattern sing. I aslo like the idea of a pale interior: I'm forever loosing stuff in my black lined bag.

Thank you, Antidigger.
I make all my bags with light-coloured linings for that reason. Why ready-to-wear bags come with Dark (and dark-coloured linings) is beyond me.
This bag is quite large. I b'lieve the pattern envelope states 16"X18". So, if you had, say a small 5 year old, you could prob'ly carry it in th's one.  Cheesy I've previously found it good for bulky, but not heavy articles.  You don't want to attempt putting a lot of cans in it; it'd carry them but, you couldn't lift it.

I showed it to my "fabric-lady", Anita, and she was impressed with it.

I had to change the elastic on the bottom. The one that I had on there was a fuzzy White Hair tie, and unfortunately, it was too short. So, I had to undo all of it, and put on a longer, black, non-fuzzy, hair tie. Still looks okay, works better, but the little one had to go.
