The two other changes to my bag design included self made piping and pull tabs at each end of the zipper placket. I think the only detail left to finish on this present, is to make a decorative tie for the zipper pull.
There is so much potential to play with details on this design - but this time I wanted to feature the fabric of this pretty fat quarter (don't you love projects that use a small amount of materials and give big results?). I know the recipent of this bag isn't a blog follower, so I decided I was safe in sharing this project with you. ;o)
Hope you're all making good progress with your handmade gift lists! Happy crafting.
