I took this bag class this weekend at The Village Quilter. Patti, one of my quilting buddies joined me. The pattern is called My Favorite Bag. I really like this bag and will make another one, perhaps a bit smaller.
I modified the pattern a bit. I made the handles a little bit longer.
There were a few lessons learned from this project.
1-) Do not use directional fabric for the outer pocket.
2-) Find a different way to do the handles because turning them is very difficult.
3-) The machine walking foot because the layers are thick and will shift.
The pattern contained instructions for a clutch or wipes case. I made one up with the leftover fabric. I decided to give the bag and case to a family friend who recently had a baby. She can use as a diaper bag or a tote bag.
