Weekender Bag #5

I have made this bag five times now and love it more everytime I make it.   This time for a friend of the twins, she is graduating from high school in less than 2 weeks.  I thought this would be a perfect gift for her college years, just the right size to pack for weekends home. 


Look!!!  I matched the pocket and the bag side, first time ever.

    I made this bag for my college-aged daughter and she loves it. She is studying abroad this semester and has taken the bag all through Europe. I really love this latest version. The fabrics are beautiful!

  14. The only bag I've made had 6 layers of fabric on the finish out and my machine wasn't happy about that. How did you handle that? I used a denim needle w/upholstery wt. thread. Any suggestions?
