The bag that I was asked to make is finished!......and looks very bold and according to my teen & tween--'beautiful'.It took me a long time to figure out how to do this front 'patch' that also serves as a pocket. For some reason I couldn't picture how each strip would come to a point and meet exactly at center. After ripping a few seams it came out like this:
However, I'm not so sure the deep snow that still covers our front yard is beautiful. Here is our son buried up to his knees. And it's March??!! Yup, the calendar says it is, but good golly, I'm not so sure the weather is up to snuff with the actual spring that is supposedly just around the corner.-------------------
It has huge pockets in the interior (but lack of light prevented me from taking a good photo of them) for cell phone, iPod, pens, make-up, etc...and is nice and roomy to be a catch-all for all of those girly things we girls tend to carry.
And now it gets shipped off to my sister-in-law, Beth who will auction it off at her yearly fund-raiser.
