Now that I glance at this photo, I realize that we still need to do the snaps on our pockets. We've been thinking about what we want to do and just haven't found the perfect solution yet. We're thinking maybe the white pearlized snaps would be the best idea... something simple since the bag fabrics are so busy.
I chose a black and white fabric for the lining since I wanted to be able to see inside the bag and I think it's perfect. I bound the top edge of the slip pockets on the one side and did an inset zipper pocket on the other. Just something to make it a bit more fun!!
Pat and I both used Soft & Stable instead of canvas for our bags. It made it much more substantial than the canvas would have and wasn't the least bit more difficult to sew/maneuver. I'm very happy with my bag and have plans to use it right away! :)
I was going to take photos of our bags together last Thursday when we showed them off at our quilting group, but I got so excited that I forgot. Luckily, Pat has the new iPhone which takes wonderful pictures, so she sent me a couple to share with you.
