I noticed a few weeks ago that the bag I use to cart all my stuff to church has a few seams that were coming apart. It was the bag I made over 4 years ago to use as a diaper bag when my son was born. It has had a. lot. of use, so I figured it was as good an excuse as any to make a new bag!! I actually spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted this bag to look like, and I decided that I wanted a simple, sort of neutral color, but add something fun to show off my true sewing love - quilting. :)
So, I made a few awesome quilt blocks to attach to the outside! I LOVE how they came out!!! Here it is:
One one side, I did the "Star" paper piecing block from the Summer Series, only I shrank it down to about half size. With the border, it finished at just under 7 inches. I love it!
On the other side I just made some half square triangles and created this cute pinwheel/star thing. It finished at just over 8 inches.
The inside is a deep blue with green pockets. The fabric is all Modern Meadow, that I was able to get at 50% off! Woot woot!
I am so happy with this bag! I know we'll have many happy Sundays together! :)
