This was a City Bag by Lazy Girl. It is a large bag, not quite a tote but would work well for a smaller laptop or files. The fabric she chose is really beautiful and she is giving it to her daughter for Valentines day. The first photo is of the front of the bag with a pocket.
This is the back of the bag. It has a single pocket all the way across the back.
Both bags have zippers in them and students are always afraid of trying to put in a zipper. Both of these purse patterns have very easy ways of doing the zipper and they went in without any drama.
Hopefully I will be able to get the photos of the other three purses transferred soon so I can show them all off.
I was so excited about the new fabric/quilt that I got it all cut out last night and strip-pieced the major pieces this morning. I got some of the sub-cuts done and have a few more still to cut. I am ready to start piecing the top together. I also found a great polkadot fabric for backing and have it ready when I get the top pieced.
