I’ve been in need of another bag for quite a while. I mostly use this old one that I made last year. This new one is made from scrap pieces I received from the patchwork swap and the Fall swap. How nice to use what I have and what others have given me. The little side pocket (blue w/ brown polka-dots) is strictly for my phone, so I don’t have to hunt for it when it rings. The straps are extra long (42″) so that I can cross it over my shoulder and the lining is an old plain blue pillow case–a light color so I can actually see what is in my bag.
