Bags are my favorite thing to make lately. They don't take much time. This is one I am currently working on. It is a birthday present for my little sister. She's turning 17. I need to cut some handles, square off the bottom (it's just pinned), and put it together at the top. I am excited about it. I just used what I had (trying not to spend money) and it's the first I made with fusible between the layers. And I also just improvised on the pockets. This was with 2 fat quarters and something a little less than a yard of black.
Also finished this one a while ago... also with fabric I had on hand.
