Christmas Bag

Outside flap

Awhile back I made a really cute patchwork flap messanger bag for a swap. My daughter loved it and said she would like a patchwork bag. Well I knew then what I'd be making her for Christmas Eve! I went to Country Quarter and bought a really cute charm pack. I can't remember now what the fabric is named but it's a Moda charm pack. Blue is her favourite colour right now and I chose a charm pack with lots of blue and blue-green as my starting point. The bottom left-hand charm is not part of the charm pack. That was from a fat quarter I picked up at Country Quarter. The middle charm is from a fat quarter I bought at Quilt n' Stitch. I had bought the stripe fabric in the summer from Fabricland but had no idea what I was going to make with it. I used a combination of tutorials I had seen on the internet to make this bag. She loves this bag! I think I need to make one for myself soon too.
