second bag

I sewed my second bag yesterday. I wanted it to be a bag I could take with me to church so I decided to make it a little bit larger than the other one and just get one bag out of my fabric instead of two. I used a fabric grocery bag as a pattern for the size, but otherwise constructed it just the same as the first according to the instructions. I think that is why this is such a great pattern. It is extremely customizable to different shapes and sizes.
I wanted to do something a little different so I added the stripes. The jury is still out on how I feel about them - they turned out a little more beachy bagish than I had intended.
The finished dimensions for this bag are about 17 inches tall and 15 inches wide.


  1. Love the fabric on this one Kelli and the way you did the stripes at the bottom is great.

  2. I think that it's very classic-looking with the stripes...great job on it! smiles...

  3. i need to hire you to take pictures of my bags. i think it's a perfect church bag and not too beachy at all.
