Sister's Bag #1

we have 1 rule for our annual trip to the Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show
each person going has to make a bag to take with them & each year it has to be a new or different bag that they made
this year for me i knew which bag i wanted to make i just didn't know what size so i started with the largest size because you can never have to many big bags - right???? plus for the largest size you could use a charm pack & i had a Freebird charm pack
no brainer on that one
Sister's 2010 Bag #1
its big - really big & i don't want to be carrying that large of a bag
the bigger the bag the heavier it gets
the pattern is from Whistlepig Creek Productions and its called The Big Shopper
the pattern is great and it has cutting instructions for 6 different sizes of bags
i am a bag makin fool so of course i did the inside different then the pattern called for but thats me - i had 2 charms left so i made a little cell phone pocket out of them & also added a sewin in magnet for help with keeping the top of the bag closed

i will be making a smaller size for my trip but i LOVE how this one turned out
i think i will use it for work - i always carry a bag to work with my lunch, junk & other stuff so this will be fun for the summer
the next one will be made out of Brady Bunch fabric
so come back & check that one out when i get it done
considering its 6 days away i had better get started

This bag is so cute! I love the cell phone pocket you added. Great idea! I may just have to get that pattern one day to make a bag for myself!
