    Mombo Bag

    I made this bag but not sure what I will use it for as yet. I was the pattern and I just knew I wanted to make it.

    I just love the bag. Where did you get the pattern. I so understand that compulsion to make something without having a single thought for its use. (Did I mention I made three different bags last week because I just needed to.)

    I bought the pattern at a quilt show. I had it for about four years and forgot about it. Found it when I was cleaning out my “she shed”.

    Slight typo, it's a Mondo bag. They are addictive to make. I love to take leftover fabrics from a project and make a matching bag. Especially from a baby quilt. New mama's are constantly carrying stuff and a matching bag doubles a perfect gift. Good job. Love the colors you chose.

    It looks very similar to the schlep bag but using smaller squares

    Thank you for the correction. Much appreciated.

    It's beautiful. I love your colors. The way you have it hanging, it almost looks like a camisole top, lol.

    A friend made lots of these last year as Christmas gifts. Yours is especially attractive.

    There is a website that sells the Mondo Bag. Google Mondo Bag and you'll find it. I made 4 of these. First one was to get familiar with the pattern and went to my sister for Christmas last year. My grandson got married this Spring and I made the newlyweds a quilt. I took some of the remaining fabric from the wedding quilt and put it in a Mondo bag for each mother. Then I made another one for a special family friend (and she asked me to make her a bag a couple years ago). I deviated from the pattern and sewed 2 1/2" strips together and did not use the fusible strip method.

    That is really a cool bag. I've never seen or heard of mondo bag before this. Getting pattern.

    Toverly ....what a great idea about a quilt and a bag gift. Awesome idea...

    See quiltnotes.com for help and instructions. It seems you can make the bag without the pattern.

    There is also a pattern like it but smaller called Midi and another called Bitty. Fun to make.

    It's great! I especially like how you used the interesting print in the handle.

    Great job. I have the pattern too but can't decide on fabric (scrappy or planned).
