The snowy weather we've been having certainly makes me feel quite content to stay inside and work on some sewing projects. The idea for this little bag popped into my head a couple of nights ago, so I quickly drew up the pattern and then made it up out of some of my less favourite fabric. Happy with that prototype's look, I decided to grab some prettier fabric to make another. Happier yet, was discovering that the scrap of cherry fabric (from my friend Jacqueline), was just big enough to make a second demo bag from my design.
Yesterday I reworked the flap for the pocket - it just wasn't quite right.
The lovely loop-pull zipper came from the haul I gathered this past Spring and had been waiting for just the right project.
I added pockets inside on the front and back, but I'm not quite satisfied with them. I think I need to change their height, but it's hard to be too upset with that detail when the fabric is this cheery.
