Pattern Description:

I started making these bags in various sizes to showcase my hand painted fabrics. They are very versatile and can be created in any size/dimension to suite your needs. They are a great way to use up your favorite fabric scraps and orphan blocks or use a unique or hand painted fabric and create a bag that everyone will admire. The smaller bag is more like a purse and the larger bag can be used as a purse or tote.
