    Here is my latest tulip bag. I made it with a pair of my hubby's old jeans and my first project for keeps using my new-to-me embroidery machine! I also made 2-sided straps for this one too.

    2 hour tulip by Janice Pope. I make and sell these bags. They are so fun to make. They can get a little thick under the foot of a machine, but if you take your time it's just fine. I have a Janome 1600 and it will sew anything. It is almost as special to me as my H3 truck.

    Your bag looks different from the Janice Pope style, did you just place the straps at a different end? I like the way the sides go in with yours.
