zippered bag


I made this as a gift for a loved one. It's bigger than most of my zippered bags since I didn't want to cut the 9" zipper; also the quilted fabric made it bulkier so it needed to be bigger.  I twisted my mind around many patterns for the bag but went with very simple finally. Of course it is late; but I hope the recipient will enjoy it and use it for many years. I have it on good authority that yellow is her favorite color so I gave up all of one of my favorite yellow prints for this.  Talk about difficult decisions.... I worried that yellow would get dirty to fast; I worried that the yellow was too light; I worried it was to dark! I worried that the green I used to back the quilting would show. I worried that I'd break a needle quilting and sewing the bag. I worried it would be too big. I worried it would be too small. I couldn't believe how difficult it was to make the decisions concerning this bag; then it took so little time to actually make it! It was one of those weeks!
