What materials did you use? This bag was made for my 1 year old grandson and I wanted something he could grow with and enjoy for many years. I used cotton flannel, reinforced with heavy interfacing and iron-on batting. The lizard print accents the Air Force Fatigues that were used for the pockets, handles and trim. The fatigues belong to Braxton's daddy, who went to Iraq, and came home safely.

This is a large bag and easily holds enough clothes for a child or grownup for a weekend. The idea for using the fatigues came from the book "Deploy That Fabric" written by Jen Eskridge, who is a member of my quilt guild. I have since made a bag for my daughter out of designer cotton fabrics, but forgot to take pictures. It is gorgeous!

This bag is a victory for sure. Way to deploy that fabric. It is eyecatching. I LOVE it!

Thanks. I've made several of these bags. Your directions are clear and the bag holds a lot.
