Love this bag

This was a good choice of project, lovely embroidery, good sized bag, measurements worked perfectly, and very enjoyable to make.

I chose 2 of the Life is Beautiful (Helen Stubbings) fabrics, and matched with other fabrics from my stash.  I also put the button on it for a closure.  I had meant to put the button on the front, but sewed the closure onto that side and had finished off the seam before I realised.  I could change it but.......  will wait and see.  And as I always do, I put pockets inside.

I love your bag Marilyn. I put pockets inside mine as well... You can never have too many pockets. The ones on the front are perfect for your keys and phone.
