Great bag idea. Just not the right size.
Better Homes and Gardens has a quilting site. If you have never been you really should check it out. www.allpeoplequilt.com You have to register to download the free patterns but it is free to register. This bag is one of their free patterns. Sewing on the handles creates 6 pockets on the outside of the bag. Just right for keys, cell phones, iPods and whatever else a girl needs to carry. The only problem for me is the overall bag size it too small. The instructions clearly state "Finished Bag: 8x10x4".
I will blame it on all the insanity in my life the past few weeks. Why I didn't check out what the finished size would be before starting the bag is beyond me. I think I will try to make another LARGER bag from the same instruction.
Mason seems to be doing quite well. I know he is having a hard time waiting until Friday to get the stitches and the drain tube out. Hope this is the final surgery for him. A guy from my company that works one of our branches in California had surgery for his pilonidal cyst last November. He told me today he thinks it is back. I can feel his pain and frustration.
