    I got this little bag free with a paid membership. It is just the right size, has an adjustable strap, and 3 zippered pockets. But it shouts, "I'm old". So I removed the binding, put pieces of fabric on top, then put the binding back on. Plus this was a fabric I got in a trade here. Your quilting skills come in handy for other projects also.

    ha ha - I got one of those bags also. I knew it was a great design so I didn't throw it away, but would never carry it as is. Now I know how to fix it! You are a genius! Thank you for the idea. And it's a great fabric.

    Fantastic idea. Turned out great. I probably would have taken the easy way out and fused an applique over it.

    Now that is a pure example of getting a lemon and making lemonade. Great job! ;-)

    What a neat thing to do. It amazes me what you can do with premades and a little bit of fabric!

    My husband has the same bag and he gave it to me because he doesn't want to shout "OLD" either. I'm using your idea. Thanks.
