My grey bag was not only my OMG February goal but it is also on my Q1 list - #7
I prefer zipper closure so here is my modification to original pattern called Madeline bag.
Plus all my bags must have zippered pocket on one side. My fav bags have pink one which brought a bit of color to my grey bag.
Grey on the outside but fun and dots on the inside.
Here is comparison to well known Super tote. I used similar or maybe the same interfacing but the new one hold its shape better. True to be told, it's empty but my Super tote is filled with stuff. It is a also a bit smaller.
I like the ties feature. It changes the shape of bag a lot. From a tote to purse kind of thing :)
Since I made this bag for myself it was also my selfish sewing goal. I'm thankful for all these fun linky parties as they help me to motivate myself and finish the projects I started.
I also made some progress with quilt for myself. Yeah people it was a selfish sewing month! :)
I attached the batting to the top with some hand quilting. I'll be adding the backing next.
Linking up with Finish it up Friday plus some more:
