    My first and it won't be my last! It was so much fun I'm ready to make my second one! I thought I needed something to carry my purchases in at the expo I attended in March. It worked out real well and all the pockets were wonderful!

    At first I was going to quilt the fabric but I realized I was under a time crunch and I didn't think I could finish in time. Instead, I added a few more buttons. For the closure I stacked two buttons together and added a few across the front pocket and beads to the side ties. I also put a magnetic snap on the inside (I'm so glad I did) which was a nice addition.
    I have to say - I'm hooked . . .

    Inside view-love all the pockets!

    After I got started it only took about four hours. But it was a fun four hours. I think it took longer deciding what to finish the front with!! The wonderful ladies at my LQS were trying all different buttons on the front for me! It was fun.
