update on 'batting strip' bag
OK, so I got called out by my friend QuilterC. She saw my bag when I was on vacation. When she looked on my blog, she could not find it..so here goes:
large pocket for my laptop. I wish I had made this a bit larger. Its a bit of a tight fit. Velcro to hold it closed for support.
Another smaller pocket on the opposite side for my Bamboo Fun pen tablet. This pocket has 2 smaller pockets on top. One fits a Kindle and the other is for cords and chargers.
Velcro tabs to hold laptop charger.
Cute handles cut off an ugly straw bag purchased at GoodWill for $3.99.
Hey! good handles are hard to come by!
I hope this spurs you on to make your own bag. I enjoyed using up some of my scrap batting! I used 20 strips from a Bali Pop. If you look at the picture of the hand sewing on the bottom of the side panel, you can see about 6 scrappy strips. When I found out I needed a few more for a bottom, I was stingy and didnt' want to use up any more batik strips. I scrounged around my scrap bins and found some fairly ugly green strips for the bottom. They will just get dirty anyway! Hope you liked seeing my bag. And now I'm off the hook with QC!
