So this was a shirt my mom used to wear.. more of a smock. It's covered in Old English Sheepdogs (which is what I grew up with). The last bag I made for her she ended up using as a purse rather than a school bag but that's fine... I came up with a new pattern tried it out and LOVE it... so I decided to chop the shirt and make her a bag.... I still have the front of the shirt to use too Smiley Mom LOVES her new purse!
Pictures...
This is the full bag - I was going to do two handles but wasn't paying attention and I think this will work better for her.

Hand stictched hearts around all of the dogs


And I finally figured out how to do the zipper pockets! SO THRILLED! This is the inside with a magnetic closure and a zipper pocket.

C&C welcome. Thanks for checking my bag out.

Nice bag. The hearts are a wonderful idea. They really make the bag.
