Welcome!! 15septemberarts is now Georgia Florida Studio! I am excited about the change. This is a place where I display my work and experiences. I am a self taught quilt maker and painter. I am always exploring new means of expression. Glad that you have stopped by.
I love sewing bags but sometimes they don't turn out as well as I would like. Not "sew" with my new "Bonnie" bag from Swoon Patterns. Alicia Miller is a wonderful designer that makes very user friendly patterns that make sense. There are also tutorials on the blog page on her site.
There is also a strong, active Facebook group Swoon Patterns Group with over 10,000 members that are always willing to help. A lot of inspiration there also.
The vinyl is from Joann. The fabric is an outdoor print and a tone on tone green stripe, also from Joann.
You can make the welt pocket with or without a zipper. I chose to make it with. I added a couple of extra pockets to the lining for convenience. August 16, 2015 this bag has been featured on: Threading My Way Features
