I keep coming back to look at this bag. I must find some of that fabric. Do you know the name of it? I was trying to find it on JoAnnfabric.com but didn't have any luck. I will check my store this week but the JoAnn's here is sort of pitiful.

Absolutely gorgeous!!  I love your fabric!!  Grin Grin

I have to agree about the handles of this pattern being very frustrating, I have this pattern too and find the handles my least favorite part.  Also the handles really do need extra padding, the handles on my first attempt bunched up and now look all bent out of shape.  I saw an example at a local quilting store where they used batting as thier interfacing and it was very sturdy. 


Great job for your first time, the holes for the handles look perfect in your pictures.

I actually don't know the name of the fabric. I'm sorry! It was with the home decor cottons. Next time I'm at Joann's, I'll try to remember to look for it again and jot down the name.

Did the batting cause it to be any harder to turn inside out? I may have to try that on the next one. It seems that if I use the bag lightly, and don't load it down with stuff, it should hold up okay. But, I agree that the handle area needs some more reinforcing. The handles are a pain -- which is sad since it's what really caught my eye about the pattern in the first place. I guess you can't really see the strays unless you look closely. But it still annoys me!

No, it wasn't difficult to turn inside out with the batting. 

i know what you mean about the strays on the handles, there has to be a way to do them without all the strings. 

great job though! Grin

Great bag.  Funny thing I made a Amy Butler InTown bag out of the same exact fabric.  Once I figure out how to post pictures I will post it.
Very cute.  I love her patterns and her fabric!
