What are you most proud of? Goal: design a bag that has several possible functions, and list its possible uses: 1. college student using a large 20" x 20" bag to take their laundry to the laundromat. 2. kid's room - use large 20" x 20" bag to gather/store small toys. 3. a super large, durable bag for garage sale shopping, or holding extra car travel items. 3. adding a 20"x 20" pillow to the bag, to make a comfy stadium seat. 4. adding a 20" x 20" pillow to the bag for resting in a car during a long trip. 5. adding a divided pocket with a personal embroidery label (in this case MY STUFF). 6. adding center ties to keep the bag from gaping open and securing items inside. 7. adding a colorful cotton for lining and ties (in this case one in red, and one in blue). P.S. - hope you like my homemade witches spell book in the photos, and Mr. Pumpkin Head. I love Pun-kin Head. That's what my husband calls me. I think its a compliment, but not really sure.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The bags are easy to make. I'm working on a pattern for you to try. Best wishes, my little pun-kin heads!

The bags are fun and oh, so practical. What I'd really like to look at closeup, though, is that spell book. You made it? Some people are such artistic geniuses! :)
