I was finally able to finish this bag for my daughters teacher and we gave it to her today. I'm so glad that she loved it and I showed her how it would also hold her laptop and other books and things. She was so excited and impressed with my sewing abilities. I told her that my daughter Kenna (10 years) helped me sew some of it together. She thought that was so cool.
If you look closely I machine quilted the fabric and it took me several hours to do the front and back panels along with the pocket. It was fun to do and I was able to brush up on my much neglected machine quilting skills. I just didn't get much of my other sewing done. That's how I spent most of my day off on Monday. Just in case you were wondering what I did on Memorial day.
Click on the picture above and you can see the machine quilting I did. It's kinda sloppy but it looks pretty good. I tried not to care too much because I know I can be self critical when it comes to machine quilting but it's okay. Here's the first Market Bag I made for the teacher I work with.
