This is the neatest bag! I found the pattern here. I've had the site bookmarked for some time, and finally got around to trying it today. Emily and I made this together, and found it to be very easy. We both want to make more.
The pattern calls for upholstery or drapery weight fabric. I had several yards of this fabric that I bought a couple of years ago at a garage sale - $4 for all of it. Go to the link above to see a cute one made of Amy Butler fabric. These would make great bags to take to the grocery store.
And here's the photo of Patches I promised yesterday. He's a special dog.
Thanks to Emily for doing the photography for me today!
