I bought Monique a new book called "I love my baby sister" and wanted a bag to put it in. So, I went back to an old tutorial I have in my bookmarks from p.s. I quilt. It has been there so long it is top of the list!! It's a great little bag although I am always changing the dimensions to fit what I want to put in it. Like the bag I made for these Xmas presents for my sisters grandchildren back in 2009.
This time I needed it to fit the book and I decided to only quilt the bottom becuase it had to be made in less than 40 minutes.
I used the basic design and added a border on the top to match the base. Of course I did this after I had cut the lining so here was a bit of adjustment to get the handles right.
Monique loves it, her own bag to carry around and put things in.
I dropped into Ikea today and bought some little softies. I think they will need their own bag as well.
