Several years ago I won a piece of hand dyed red fabric from Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber. I hate to admit it but I lost track of that piece of fabric – it got tucked down in between several pieces of fabric among the short stacks – I forgot I had it. I found it recently and I immediately once again wondered what should I make out of it. I love the large tote bag that I made last month and the pattern came in three sizes. I decided to make the medium size bag. I have been busy today making this bag and I got some work done on Joseph’s Coat too – more on that one tomorrow.
First I pieced together a charm package of squares to use for the inside lining.
I had enough of that patchwork for two sides and one pocket. I used some of the red for the center piece and one more pocket on the inside.
I am pleased with the look! The front.
Two inside pockets, one outside pocket and I put a loop inside to hook my keys on. Now tomorrow I need to shop for a new wallet – this one is going to be a large purse – I can fit my kindle in it for times I want it with me. I can fit brochures in it when at museums and such – I can never fit them in the purses I normally use (smaller than this), my camera can be tossed in, I’m going to get a couple small flat cosmetic types bags for organizing and it will be set!
Thank you Vicki for the win – sorry it took me so long to make something out of it!!
