new bag

Here is my Bag! This is what I did Friday and Saturday. I found the red and cream linen made up in a skirt at the thrift store ThursdayPosted by Picasaand thought I really needed it. A straight size 10 skirt does not have a lot of fabric in it, so under the outside pocket is a paisley that coordinates with the other 2 fabrics. This bag is big; it is about 12 X 17, so will hold a novel, a water bottle, a magazine, and a lunch so it will be perfect for my trip to California in 2 weeks. It needed heavy duty interfacing, and a stiffer bottom; I used plastic canvas but maybe fiberboard would be better. Jeffrey tells everyone that I made my bag, the missionaries came over and he showed them, we were buying a trumpet from an old man at the high school and he told him. He is so sweet, he thinks it is cool to sew. He started a card Sunday (sewing a card) when he gets finished I'll post it here.

It really is pretty. That red linen fabric/pattern/thing is really you. I am guessing I think that b/c I've seen it around the house before but I really like it. Great job. That could be a great gift! Or even without the interfacing for shopping bags.
