I finally finished this bag yesterday after working on it for a week. The fabric was very shreddy and got all over the place!
I do like it though and it's very roomy and has a lot of pockets on the inside for stashing things. My husband foolishly commented that now I would not have to buy any more bags since I do such a good job of making them. Right-0!
I'll be going to Burlington, VT in a few weeks for some oral surgery and I'll be getting a bunch of fabric to make spring and summer bags. Probably my next project will be an apron that I promised to my former sister-in-law. I much prefer making things for other people anyway.
