Here's my first project that I'm unveiling! I know it's been a little over a week since I teased you with my fabric purchases but this was well worth the wait! I bought a pattern from Simplicity and then modified it, and modified it some more. In fact, I modified it so much, I wonder if it is even fair to tell you that it started as a bought pattern.
Here's the outside pockets that were an addition.
My confession: I have no idea how to quilt so the fabric I bought was pre-quilted. I cheated and don't feel bad about it. While more expensive, I had a coupon which made this cost me all of $20. Cheap!
Also the original pattern called for you to make the handles from fabric. After talking to another girl in JoAnns (who worked there) she recommended the belting. It saves you some major dough.
It also said to make contrasting fabric stripes. I skipped that step. Love it made of one fabric. I'd like to sell these things. I wonder if I can or if that breaks some kind of copyright law? I've modified more than a few things. It's like a semi-original.
