I've had a bunch of bags cut out for a LONG time (I'm embarrassed to say how long..) and am finally getting around to finishing them. Never mind the fact that I just moved my sewing room from the basement up to the first floor and am LOVING my new beautiful space!! Being in the basement definitely had its disadvantages! So now that my sewing room is organized and pretty I've been sewing like mad trying to finish up all those unfinished projects I had. (Only 5 more projects to go... :)
Here is my latest bag. This one has been in my mind for far too long, also. Let's just say that my son has been taking music lessons for over a year now, and I had thought of doing one like this since before he started his lessons. Pathetic, I know! But, now that its done, I think it looks GREAT! It came out just as I had hoped. Now when I say to him, "where are your piano books?" he can tell me! (or at least that's the idea!)
I think my idea for this bag came when I found this fabric at the store. I mean what could be more perfect for a 'music bag' that this? I used it for the inside of the bag! Love it!!
If you need a great tote bag, this is the one for you. I call it the Land's End bag pattern.
