 This is Octobers Bag for the Carried Away Bag of the Month Club. This pattern is by Swoon patterns. I am a real fan of her designs. I was nervous to start this one because it called for rivets, which I had never done. They looked so intimidating but were actually quite easy! I was so surprised. The club is really pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me try new techniques. I am loving it! The push locks were new for me too.
 For this bag I didn't use my normal focus type fabrics and went with Tim Holtz Eclectic instead. I had to have the fabric when I saw it at my local store but had no idea what I would use it for. I think it went well with this pattern. I put the "R" in the front since that is my initial, so I did fussy cut.  Cheesy
 Also that is Egon acting as my model/muse. He loves to watch me sew.

Love the bag and the fabric - great combination.

This is my favorite of the Carried Away ones that you've done so far. I like the shape and size of this one and I think that the zipper compartment separating out the main compartment will be very handy. This way it's not like everything will get lost in a big bag opening. The fabric you chose and your fussy cut are amazing as well. Smiley

You are really good at making bags! Kudos on tackling some new things and stretching yourself, too. I love that Tim Holtz print, too, and really that whole line. I bought 2-yard lengths of several when they were hugely discounted and now you have me thinking that maybe even I could try to make a bag using them!

You should! I had no idea what I would make with the yard I bought but I think it lent itself really well to the bag.

Love this! And I love Egon. He is adorable! My kitties are often part of the creative process, as well. More often than not, though, they seem to be offended by my trying to use "their" fabric to make something other than a soft spot for them to hang out!
