It was the first time I had sewn a zipper closure to a bag, and her instructions walked me right through. I love it so much, every time I walked by the bag, I would stop to zip and unzip it (how corny!).
The bag has a belt that cinches up the top a bit to give it the lovely rounded shape - and just the right amount of hardware to make it interesting.
And, an interior zip pocket which is my new favorite. Following Janelle's directions, mine came out a bit more polished than past attempts.
The pattern gives you different options for closures, interior pockets, hardware and exterior. Plus, you can use a variety of fabrics for different looks. One awesome pattern, so many different looks - this could take you through every season! Check out Emmaline Bags for ideas (I am in love with the gray tweed one).
So....my question for you is this: would you rather enter a giveway for the bag, the pattern, or both?
