Whistlepig Creek Productions. It is called "Little Sister". As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it so it went on my Must-Do List. I get to cross it off that list today.
I wanted to make my bag similar to the photo on the pattern. I love the newsprint fabric that I found to use for the main part of the bag. I found it in the "Sale Room" at Suttles. It has lots of comical quilting related stories on it. The lining fabric is also a text print with lots of quilty words. There are roomy pockets on the inside as well. I forgot to remove a straight pin while sewing the handles down and it is stuck forever between the handles and the inside pocket!
I had planned to sew in the zipper as per the instruction but I wimped out. I will just attach a snap for a closure.
This bag was a bit challenging and there was a ton of sewing. almost 400" of bias binding! I gave my new back-up sewing machine a real workout. Fusible fleece is used for a batting and the main body and the side pieces of the bag are machine quilted. Fusible interfacing is used to make the outer pockets have a nice shape. Elastic is sewn into the top of the side pockets. The directions were very clear and I just took my time and went step-by-step .
I think this is the first time that I ever started and finished a project and didn't start another project in the middle of it!
