And another one…

Of course I couldn’t stop at just one bag…no…Nanette’s pattern was just too much fun to put together. 

I had some favorite fabric strips that were saved together and thought they’d be perfect for this, except the pattern calls for 4 inch strips and I found that mine were only 2 to 3 1/2 inches wide.  Drats! 

So I donned my thinking cap, jimmy-rigged the pattern a bit, did some extra piecing and came up with this.

Woohoo!  I like it.

Other than the lining, I used only scraps.  No two strips on either side are alike and there wasn’t even enough to make two handles of the same fabric…they are similar but not the same.

A new bag and a little lighter scrap bin.  I’ve used those favorite fabrics nearly down to crumbs.

Love it. So so cute. I really like what you did with it. I think that is the most fun part of sewing. Taking an idea and making it our own. Sherri made patchwork strips and I love hers too.
