I saw a picture of this bag and just loved how it looked. The first one I used batting instead of interface and it came out ok, but was really just to bulky. This one has the right interfacing and I love how it turned out. Future bags will have either more solid outer material, or a little square of solid material in the corner so I can add some pretty embroidery or some painted designs to them. I did that on the first one and I did like how it looked. I’ll play it by ear and it will depend on the material I use. I like to mix things up. 🙂 The lining is a blue and white ticking. I loved how it looked inside. I’ll be making these to sell in my shop, Chickadee Junction, as well.
