What was your inspiration? The "S" was appliqued on a small square of fabric in an applique class several months ago. I've been looking for a way to use it. The piece of fabric was too small, so I had to piece the front panel together. I added stripes of the contrasting fabric. Both the red and blue FQs had been used in the applique class, so I didn't have enough to match the bag pattern exactly. I made the drawstrings out of the blue fabric, and the lining is made from a neutral fabric from my stash.
