Grab and Go Bag #1

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I really do like this little bag. I planned it out in my head over several days. The vision was there and this looks just like I'd imagined. I measured, cut , and designed as I sewed, constantly making little adjustments, but I miscalculated the exact size. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience!

Q&A with K Lee 2Strings

Oh mom, you are really twisting my arm. Did I ever mention green and pink are my favorite colors? Beautiful piece again.~~~~ Gee, I do crochet, knit, cook, gardening, crafts with recycled items, but never got into sewing, shame on me.
K Lee 2Strings answered:
I chose the fabric for my sister-in-law because those are her favorite colors, too. Green and pink must run in the family. I envy your skills with yarn as mine are very rudimentary. My mother began teaching me to sew as soon as I was old enough to hold a needle, but I didn't learn to knit or crochet till after I was married and though my crochet is passable, my knitting is terribly uneven. You need to come to my house. I've been teaching a group of friends how to sew and quilt. One has become completely independent with quilting and is turning out beautiful quilts one after the other.
sewbug57 asked:
Awesome !!! I love it...are you going to be sharing the pattern with us ?
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Glad you like it. Originally, I had thought I'd make a pattern to put up, but I had to make so many changes along the way that I gave up on the thought. I am going to try a small one and I'll try to make it a bit simpler. If that works out I will put up a pattern - just because you asked. :)
sewbug57 asked:
I really don't see how you come up with all these things. That had to be complicated. I admire you for being able to do it. You really have talent.
K Lee 2Strings answered:
More like I've had well over half a century of practice.
Tanya W. asked:
You are such a talent, and I just LOVE your bag! It matches the other one you made! The fabric is beautiful. Another great job!
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Thank you. I think I got carried away because the fabric was on sale for next to nothing. I'll likely get another bag or two out of it - one for each of the family females.
