The step by step photo instructions posted for a SAL on the Quilt Barn blog are brilliant! Thanks to everyone who pointed me in their direction. You can find them HERE if you want to make a bag too. I decided that the original quilted piece I had would be too bulky, so I will save it for another project.
I decided instead to make mine from these two sale fabrics that I picked up last week.
I am happy with my finished bag, but it did take me all afternoon to make it!
I especially like the three individual zipped sections inside
I plan to use mine to carry all my embroidery tools etc to class. I am not sure if I will ever make another, but apparently the second one goes together much faster, so who knows!
