Flower-y Finish

 


... finished this yesterday...
...The Fat Quarters Bag from Melly & Me...



 ... it's a gift I know will be loved...
(no it's not for a swap, so I'm not ruining anyone's surprise!)

It was a super-easy bag to make, & I could have had it sewn within a day if I had organised my time a little better...

I do enjoy making bags, & this is one pattern I'll definitely make again




The bag is a good size, however I used the recommended d-rings for the handles & find them to be a little heavy for the soft structure of the bag. I'm sure when there are things in the bag, it will feel better.
It uses only 4 fq's, or the equivalent.



Happy Me!









 Tonight for Friday Night Sew In I'll be continuing to work on my Christmas Treasures Wreath, so getting that organised is easy. And I do so love to go visit the linky to see other FNSI results...
