I'm very happy with how this bag turned out - I made it for lindyv321 in the Box of Color swap.



I used a heavy weight iron-on interfacing to give it some sturdiness, which is why it looks a little stiff - that should soften up the first time it's washed.



Two pockets on the inside lining:



I used the Jordy tutorial to guide me, but changed some things. It was tough pulling the whole big bag through the little side hole in the lining! I may do something different next time.



Thanks for looking!

Cool! It almost looks like you stamped the fabric yourself. (Did you?)
