Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? For the main body of the bag I used 100% cotton scraps that I had left over from a few quilts that I had made. Then, I used a blue canvas cotton fabric for the bottom. My utility cloth was an off white denim that I purchased in the drapery/upholstery area of the fabric shop.

What are you most proud of? I wanted to make a bag that was very colorful and reminded me of one of the quilts I had made. Also, I wanted it to be made of darker colors to take me from late summer into fall.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself some time to complete this project and have patience.

Love it! I, too, have signed up for the class, but haven't had a large block of time to devote..........yet.

I really love this vibrant coloured bag. Funny, I have already started using colours that will move into FALL and its not August yet... I have been inspired to start one of the QAYG totes at least a version of this bag. So far it has been fun and I check each day for new additions to admire. I hope to post mine by the weekend, Monday at latest. Thanks for sharing.

Very pretty! Your bag looks more structured. Is it because of the white denim do you think? I love your colors!

The white denim was very soft, so I don't think it was that. Perhaps I used a heavier interfacing.
