Another Bag DONE!!!

LOVE this bag.  Kinda like the one I made my Mom (which she hasn't received yet, but once she does, I'll post pictures).  Anyway, our church holds a huge fundraiser ever year called "Wurstbraten".  We make sausage, sell it by the pound, then have a Sausage Supper..  It's the main fundraiser we have each year and this year it's on November 6, 2011.    As part of the night, they also have a "Country Store" where people can make things to be sold and all the profits go to church.

Last year I made this pillow:
Church Pillow 10/2010

So this year I decided to make a tote bag kinda like Mom's.  They are coming down for a visit sometime really soon (end of this week), so I thought I better get the bag done so I don't have to worry about it while they are here.  I started it yesterday.  As with most of the things I make, I don't use a pattern, just start out and see how it ends up.  I got most of the piecing done yesterday, so today I just had to put it together.  It took me longer than I thought it would, but turned out really nice!




I added pockets inside this one and the hook and loop closure is about 4" long.  You can't see it on the picture of the front, but I quilted a design on the sides of the pocket.   It's 14" wide, 14 1/2" tall and the gusset is 5".   I'm very happy with the result!  After my list of things to sew I'll make me one (like I need any more bags - lol).

Comments are always appreciated!!!!!  These would make great Christmas presents!  Send me an email at jylslife at!!!!!!
