I finally completed my Pretty Pleats Reversible Tote. My first attempt went pear shaped so I re-gathered my strength and courage and picked some new fabrics and started fresh. And thank goodness I did because now I have this pretty bag:
I'm loving the quirky birds [Laura Gunn Garden Wall] fabric - especially the one on the bottom left corner! They are all pretty cute feathered friends, don't you think!? I also used Kona Brick and Kona Navy but now wish I had used Cerise or Eggplant instead of the brcik red. I am pleased I finally made it and the best bit is that it turned out! Oh and that it looks like it should and it works (quite a sturdy bag)! I'll be using it on my upcoming holiday as it is nice and spacious inside for all sorts of things like a bottle of water, a camera, wallet and snacks!!
I will eventually purchase more black with cream dots fabric to make my first version with, as that is what I really want to use as my everyday bag. But at least it is done and off my 3rd Quarter Finish Along list with Quilter in the Gap. If I make another I may add a magnetic closure, an inside pocket and key ring clip which will make it non-reversible but that's ok by me!
So I am happy to link up toVintage Holiday quilt!
Have a great weekend!
Cute bag - I think the red looks good!

Great bag!! and I love the fabric!! is it still available? where did you get it from??
Cool bag. Di x
Great looking bag! =D
Lovely bag, Amy, am about to tackle one of these myself as a project and am considering having a trial run first - somehow it doesn't look as easy as the 241!
I'm wanting to learn to make more different types of bags.
Really cute. I love it.
Love the bag!! Your troubles with it paid off!!
the bag looks great, Amy!!
What a great bag! It sure will come in handy, being large enough to hold all the good stuff! Whoop whoop!!
I love this bag! And it reminded me that somewhere I have some of this gorgeous fabric - off to go searching for it now. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF. :)
Amy, that bag is SO cute! I love the birds! You did a beautiful job and I love your plans for the next one! Can't wait to see it. Congrats on a great finish and thank you for linking up!
