Sorry, I am so late in getting my pictures of this bag posted. It's been one of THOSE months, you know?
I was allowed the wonderful opportunity to test this bag for Anna at Charmed Liebling.
This is the Rhine Valley Bag--click to go buy this pattern.
I decided to go a little on the wild side with the fabric....looks similar to the pilgrim hat huh? :) I got this fabric at a big discount. A local store was going out of business and selling bolts of home décor fabric for next to nothing!
The only slight change I made while making this bag was the handles. I made these myself and added them a little differently than the instructions. I attached the handles as one of the last steps. After assembling the front/back and lining together.
This is the view of the top of the bag....it has a zipper closure. Zippers may scare away some, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I like to have a zipper closure in the bags I use.
This is the inside of the bag. There are two huge dimensional pockets on one side of the inside of the bag.
This is the back of the bag.
This is such a great bag! It is on the larger side. I don't know about you but I like to take larger bags when I travel. There just seems to be so much more that I need to stuff in my purse. I love the flap pockets on the front and the zipper top closure. The inside pockets are great, too!
Go get this pattern and make yourself one of these great bags--Rhine Valley Bag Pattern from Charmed Liebling.
