    New Bag for Mom

    My mom (Board Name is Johanka) has been visiting me for a little bit now. When she saw the black/white/red bag I made a while ago, she wanted to make it when she got here. We just had to go shopping for the fabric for her bag. The next day she was not feeling the best, so I cut the fabric and fusible fleece all out. I then just pined pieces together and worked the iron. She sat at my sewing machine and did all the sewing. It went real quick this way and she is very happy with the results. And she is feeling much better so she can enjoy the bag and the grandkids!!

    Here is the inside of the bag. She used Plastic Canvas for the bottom, as did I. One sheet was not long enough so we just off set the two long pieces and filled in with a smaller piece on each end. Yes, there is two layers of Plastic Canvas sewing together. Worked out great for both bags.

    The pattern is "Pockets A Plenty" from Whistlepig Creek Productions. Very easy to do and lots of options when it comes to fabric choices.
