Don't know why it's taken me days to post this because I am seriously in love with this bag. I had hoped to get better pictures but I just don't think that is going to happen any time soon. And I've been dragging this bag all over town with me. It's my new fave. You may remember this as my "let's give hexagons a go" project. Rousing success, I say.
I finished this on late Tuesday night - or maybe early Wednesday morning. So it was either my last finish of May or my first finish of June. I had a hard time deciding on the fabrics to finish it. Didn't want anything that would compete too much with the front of the bag. I was going to do the sides, bottom and back in linen but that seemed too tame so I switched it up and used the fabric I was going to use to line it for the back instead.
Hello Ventura!!! I love this fabric. I bought it about two years ago knowing that the right project would come along. This seemed like the right one.
So I used a good portion of my stash of this awesome Valori Wells fabric from the Del Hi collection. I may have to restock that for my stash. I heart it a bunch. I'd be sad to use it all up. And then I thought that crazy polkadot - also from Del Hi - would be great for pockets. My only mistake here is that the pockets ended up on the inside of the front of the bag instead of the back. Not a big deal at all, just wasn't quite what I imagined.
Hope you all have a good weekend. I'm sewing with some friends tomorrow. Happy.
