Pattern Description:

The bag is a quick quick tote pattern. The bag measures 11" diameter and approximately 9 1/2" tall. The perfect round circle bottom is cut by tracing (or rotary cutting around) a 12" vinyl LP record! The handle is a soft fabric sash style handle interwoven through grommets. Of course, there is yardage requirements for using a uniform, or using traditional fabric in its place.

Quilter's World featured this bag in April of 2011, on page 80.
