I've Been Sewing

Thought you might like to see the bag I have made today, It is all finished.

Here is the pattern I followed:

The Fat Quarter Gypsy Bag. The pattern is simple to follow and is free on the net

This is the front of my bag

Here is the back of my bag!

I have made one change to the pattern - I joined my handles together instead of knotting them, because it has been my experience that knotted handles don't work.

I am also going to sew the sides of the bag together, or attach them somehow, because it looks strange to me with them unsewn.  

I also will be attaching some beads and baubles to it as I really do like it in the batiks.  I'll post a picture when it is all finished.

It is quite a large bag, I think I may make another and cut the size back a little.

isnt it fun when you are able to make a project your own by little changes that make it "better" x
