For a recent HVMQG activity, we all got together and sewed the "Trendsetter Bag" by Jessica Van Denburg. Since, pretty soon I will be back to lugging around a diaper bag, I thought this would be a good opportunity to make a non-mom purse for myself!
Thanks to some favorite Melody Miller "Vintage Ladies" fabric I treated myself to at Quilt Con last year, but have been hoarding, I got to make a sturdy, but fresh spring bag.
I love the text overlay on this fabric and how it changes from blue, to metallic to rust color.
This pattern was quick and easy to put together. I cut it out at the meeting and got to finish it at the Mid-Atlantic Mod Retreat I attended for work. :) There is a nice inner zip pocket that you can see in this picture and the opposite side has divided, open-topped pockets. Lining fabric is by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics.
What have you made for yourself lately?
