Here's the back-up bag for C., just in case she wasn't thrilled with the first one (I"m so glad she liked the first one though!).
I used Amy Butler Lotus fabric and charm squares to make the bag, making it easy as pie to coordinate everything ... and it was a great way to use up the last few charm squares I had of those fabrics. The strip of charm squares goes all the way around the bag and is continued on the straps in a few places ... just to add a little interest.
It was a quicky (less than 1 hour total) and I'm pleased with it.
The bag measures about 14" by 16" with straps about 26" total length.
The tote is lined in red polka-dot with a pocket of the gray Lotus fabric and topped with little squares of the coordinating fabric. The bag could be reversed, I suppose, but the lining isn't sewn as neatly as it could be where the opening to flip the bag was ... it sure wouldn't be hard to hand-stitch it invisibly so the bag could be two-sided, but I wasn't thinking that far ahead.
