For the holiday weekend, I wanted a bag that was portable, something I could sling over my shoulder without any problems. We're going to Greenfield Village in Dearborne, Mich. and I'm so excited :).
So this is what I came up with.
It's H-U-G-E. I love it!
It measures about 9" wide and 17" tall.
The handles measure about 21" to the shoulder. I made them a lot longer than what the pattern called for, so I could sling it over my shoulder while we're at the Village.
The pattern called for four different prints, but I chose eight because I found too many that I loved!
The fabric is Bliss by Bonnie and Camille. I know the stripe isn't from Bliss, but for the life of me, I can't remember which line it's from. Shame on me!
Speaking of patterns, this is the one I am referring to -
So the pattern comes with two bag options, which I love. I'm sure I'll make the other one at some point, but I'm quit content with the larger one :).
I did alter it a bit, by making the handles longer and choosing more prints. The bag was so easy to put together, I was so surprised at myself!
Because I used so many prints, I had enough scraps to make this cute pillow!
The center square is just a cute little label -
Oh, and I have an update about the swap. June is turning out to be a little bit more than insane. If you remember the post where I last talked about it, I hadn't really committed to anything at that point, and I'm glad I didn't. Right up until June 26th, I am jam packed full of exams, deadlines, a wedding, and life.
Thanks for stopping by!
