Wonderland Bag

The April project for the Big City Bags Sew Along (Big City Bags is a book by Sara Lawson at Sew Sweetness) over at Sewing With Squeak was the Wonderland Bag.  I think this pattern was a lot easier than last month's clutch. I substituted some of the materials. I used Annies Soft and Stable instead of the recommended Thermolam Plus Fusible Fleece and I used Pellon Peltex 70 instead of the Pellon 520 Deco-Fuse.  In addition, I used 23" handles and not the 28" handles called for in the book.

The only thing I don't like about this bag is the opening. I feel it is too small. 

I have some coordinating fabric that I will use for next month's project so there will be a set.
