So happy to say, this is my first completed project post, and my second completed sewing project, period.

I saw this bag in the Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection out now.  It's called a grab bag.  One handle is longer than the other, and you pull it through the short handle, and hold it by one handle. 

Being my first post and all- I would love your feedback.  I have seen amazing things on this site, and it's very inspiring.  Having completed this, I think I will do a few things differently next time.  :-)

I've included a few pics, hopefully not too many.


Below- the bag itself.  I love the prints...

Below- same, more of the lining

Below- a shot of the inside & pocket...

Below- one of it sitting...

And lastly, my version of an action shot...

Love the prints, especially the turquoise! Love the bag! And love how it works!  Grin

I really need to make one like this!
Thanks for posting!

I really like that! Was it hard to do?

Cute!  Someone else had posted similar ones a while back, with the 2 different length handles.  I liked the design then, and I like it now!  Is it easy to use?  I've thought about making one, but wasn't sure I'd like how I'd have to use it as much as I like the way it looks and the idea of it.  What do you think?

Great work!  Keep posting! Grin

These are just the cutest bags.  You did a really good job, the fabric is cute.  Grin

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting!

The bag was easy to make, only took me a few hours in total. I had trouble sewing around the corners and closing up the handles at the top, but I just started sewing.  I think I could pull it off better next time.  :-)

I looked on the BHG site, but didn't see a link to this bag.  I think because it had a pattern attached. 
Is it against the rules to scan the magazine pages and post a link?  ;-)
