A Snazzy Bag!

Is this SNAZZY, or what? I've taken a bit of a break from quilting to make some fun stuff. I made this bag from a pattern designed by Lila Tueller. Of course, it's called "The Snazzy Bag." A few months ago, Lila offered this pattern to download from her blog at no cost for a limited time. And me, being on a yearlong no-buy journey, jumped on it! Now you'll have to buy the pattern for yourself, but trust me, it's well worth it.
I made mine from a fat quarter bundle I had stashed in a drawer. Don't you love these colors? And please note my covered button closure.
It's lined with some polka dot fabric I had in my stash. The pockets are so handy - it has EIGHT pockets inside!
And yes, my signature black and white striped binding. Ooh la la! I love it!

Love your snazzy bag! Great fabrics too! I made the snazzy bag a while back but did the version with the flap over the top.

Ohhhh! The possibilities with this design!! This is so cute and makes me want to put my other creative projects aside and just go make one. :)
