One of Everything bag

One of Everything Bag 1
I don't know why it took me so long, but a year after getting Seams to Me for Christmas, I finally dove in and made some projects. The first thing I made was the storage box (which I've realized I never took any pictures of but will try to at some point in the near future), and the second thing I made was the One of Everything bag. I really like the shape of this bag, and the fact that the inside is deceptively roomy. It came together incredibly well, and I've been using it for a few weeks now with no complaints, though more than a few compliments!

The one thing I didn't like about the bag was the braided handle, so I used a trick I learned from an Atkinson bag instead to make round, batting-filled handles. These turned out great and are nice and comfy, too! I also omitted the dangly side things because, honestly, I didn't really like them. And I think the bag has enough going on without them.
