This bag was made for C, whom I've never met before. C saw the bag that I made for E and liked it so much that she wanted me to make her a bag too so she asked my mum (C, E and mum all work together) and of course my mum said "sure, she would love to make you a bag!!"
I sent C some emails with fabric combo's and she chose this Amy Butler Lacework in Brown and Full Moon Dots in Lime combo, mmmmmm yum!
I used the same pattern as the Dick and Jane bag I made for the bag swap. This time the handles are a little floppier due to the lighter-weight interfacing but I think I prefer them to be that little bit stiffer. I used pellon for this bag where as I didn't in the Dick and Jane bag. I love the quilted feel and thickness of the pellon.
I did a huge zippered pocket so C will be able to store lots in there and I also made sure I got a longer zipper for this bag, no worrying about fitting your hand into this pocket.
I am really happy with the end result and once again, will be sorry to see it go.
BIG ZIPPERED POCKET
I ended up making a matching pocket tissue holder as a little extra surprise - too cute!
