A new bag for Christmas: ModCloth Handmade Contest

Added Dec 19, 2010

A christmas gift for me – a new bag. This bag took a long time to design, but only a week or two to cut out and sew. This bag has a two-way zippered closure, handles attached with metal D-rings, pockets on the front with magnetic clasps, a zippered pocket on the back and inside there are pockets for 3 pens, a phone, books and papers and one interior zippered pocket. There is also a pocket for a water bottle.

Some of the techniques I used (piping, use of peltex) were adapted from the instructions for Amy Butlers Sophia carry all and Weekender bags.

My new blue bag would compliment the Get Acquainted Dress, Saucy Saffron Coat and Your Go-To Scarf from ModCloth.

Material Notes

Exterior: Upholstery fabric. Interior: Quilting fabric. Piping: Ripstop nylon. All from Fabric.com

    Holy cow! This is incredible! The details really give it that professional edge and I love the fabric choices (the lining is adorable AND stylish!). Also, the inner water bottle/travel mug holder is ingenious. Fabulous work!
