A Bag to Carry Their Stuff (and mine)

I recently purchased some denim/cotton fabric from the remnant bin at Joann's and decided to make this bag I sew in Jenny Ryan's Sew Darn Cute. I really like how it came out!


It was my first time using:

-a magnetic snap
-cotton webbing for the handle (btw, the book's pattern calls for two, shorter handles, but I wanted one like this to have my hands free)
-a reinforced strip around the top for the handles
-an inside zippered pocket

I did some patchwork on the front, using vintage bedsheets from my mom (also used the sheets to make a dress for my daughter and a sewing machine cozy for myself). And the lace was left over from my daughter's baptismal dress.

I love my little bag, but I'm finding it a tad too small for my (our) needs. I think I might have to look for a pattern for another bag. (Which I think is half the fun!)
