    Peace Sign Bag

    This was an exciting purse to make. It was my first ever attempt at applique'. I received the pattern as a gift over a year ago from one of the monthly swaps here. The pattern is by Sweet Seams and it's called Peace Sign Bag.
    It's a 12 x 16 x 7 bag, three pockets on the back, one on each side, a key pouch inside. And I added an extra pocket inside to hold my wallet, a note pad and a pen. The drawstring is the string they use to tie jelly rolls up. (I knew hoarding that would come in handy one day. My key ring is to big to put them in the key pocket, so it is now called my CCW permit holder.

    Enjoy

    Thanks Heather and Scakes.
    It was a nice break from working on my latest quilt project.
    Today it's back to basting and getting the quilts ready for the quilting part.

    I took it out on it's maiden voyage yesterday. My husband surprised me with a Valentine's Day lunch at my favorite restaurant. We joked about just putting our "doggie" bags in there instead of a plastic bag to carry them in.
    I probably could put one of my machines in it..... I know Kola the cat would fit in it easily........LOL

    Thanks for the compliment.

    Thank you, most of everything I sew or quilt has a peace sign somewhere. It's a piece of myself added to the finished project.
