with an inset zipper in the back yoke of the outside shell....
but one wasn't enough, I also made one for my sister in law who was celebrating her 50th birthday this passed Feb..
Inside the bag there is another inset zipper pocket (which is where I added my sister in law's appliquéd 50) and slip pockets to keep your phone, etc organized...
and the bag has some really cute and fun details, including the strap holders and the side pleat!
What I've Been Up To:
I finished my Wiggle Me Colourful quilt pattern for my niece
I also finished my Around the Block quilt pattern for my nephew:
With a pieced section added to the back and the contrast in fabric and thread, the back has its own visual appeal too. I call this 2 for 1 quilting!!
And I have been bravely sewing my bindings on both sides when they are black thread on black fabric. The only way this perfectionist can handle the fact that the stitching is never even on the back, but the phrase "done is better than perfect" keeps playing over in my head. It does feel so good to have these quilts done and ready to finally gift....it's only 3 months after Christmas......
One Block Wonders Update:
For the first time since starting the One Block Wonders, my quilt sample for the month is not only done, it's quilted and the binding is on!
I used the Omni Ash Grey thread again for this one with the digital pattern Turbulence.
