My new bag

So, I found a really cool sew along on the {make} blog. I made a new bag for myself. I got to try out quilting and make an adjustable strap so I can wear it across my body. The blog made 2 short straps to be carried or over the shoulder. I used 19 different fabrics on it! I think I like it. Have to use it for a bit and see if it softens up because right now it's pretty stiff. Without further ado, here's my new bag!


The super long strap that I love and made out of all the different fabrics in the bag. The hardware came from strapworks. LOVE IT! I can even get the hardware in different colors and sizes!

Hi! I'm doing the sew a long as well. I love the colors in your bag! I had the same problem with my lining. I think it might be b/c the pockets are so stiff. I put a few stitches here and there b/w the lining and bag at the very bottom and then laid my bag on the ironing board and ironed it with the lining in place and it seemed to help.
